Default TCP Tuesday 167 - Technique Challenge

Happy Tuesday! Are you ready for a new challenge?? I don't know about you but ever since I got my Copic markers that's basically the only way I color these days!! What did we do before Copics?? Well for one, we Watercolored! My challenge - Let's pull out our Niji Brushes, fill them up (since the water is most likely evaporated) and get watercoloring!

Here are the details for this challenge:

1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.
2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the guestbook on Alma's Blog and/or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keyword TCPTUES167 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.

Visit the Challenge Gallery HERE.

I went CAS this week using one of the newly released sets, Nesting.
