Watercoloring with Scraplings and A New Challenge Blog!

Good morning friends! I am SO excited to share some wonderful news about my dear friend, Virginia Lu.  She has created a new challenge blog called Virginia's View.  You can check out her blog HERE.  She also has a Pinterest page HERE and a Facebook page HERE.  I can promise you that with her humor, talent, and creativity, FUN FUN FUN is headed our way!
Last week I was introduced to a technique called Scraplings.  I totally embraced these adorable little gems and wanted to work my magic on a couple more.  They are only 1 1/2 inches by 4 1/4 inches.
For the supplies I used, see below.  I hope you will help support Virginia and create a project for her very first challenge!  Thanks for stopping by and as always, I would love to read your comments.

love your beautiful scraplings, Marcy! The colors are so pretty and that flourish stamp is a favorite of mine.

Aren't scraplings fun? I think they're even more of a challenge than ATCs because of that long skinny shape, but when they're done well, like yours, they are magic! Love your take on V's challenge, sweet Marcy!
