Pretty Pink Posh + Avery Elle = ♥♥

PPPandAE 

Welcome to the 2-day collaboration blog hop between Pretty Pink Posh and Avery Elle!  These are 2 fantastic companies and I am thrilled to be able to work with both of them!  You should have arrived on the blog hop from Lisa Elton's blog.  If not, visit either the Pretty Pink Posh blog or Avery Elle blog for complete list of participants!



I worked with the The Reef stamp set and Coral Reef dies from Avery Elle and paired them with the Scalloped Rectangles from Pretty Pink Posh to create a fun underwater scene.   I first watercolored some pieces of paper and used those for diecutting out my pieces.  I loosely watercolored another piece of paper to resemble my underwater scene.  Using a Misti tool, makes stamping a sentiment on watercolor paper a breeze!  And a project just isn't complete without some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!

***PRIZES***

There are 2 $25 Pretty Pink Posh gift certificates and 2 $25 Avery Elle gift certificates up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop.  Comments must be left by July 24, 2016. Winners will be announced on the PPP and Avery Elle blogs.
