Enjoy The Little Things In Life Design Team Blog Hop - Technique

Welcome back everyone 😊

I am desiging today with the 'Enjoy The Little Things I Life' Design Team, this hop is hosted by Martha Groeger.

Today we are all sharing a technique.
I decided on which technique to do when I had a fantastic response to a card I created last week. I was asked specifically to share what I do.
So, my technique is watercolouring.

You are here with me Kim Oliver - KOCreations Cards.
I have a list of hop participiants closer to the end of this post.

Here are my projects.
