Watercolour Indent Valentines Cards

Watercolour Indent Valentines Cards 11

We have been experimenting with watercolours since getting some new water brushes in our stockings at Christmas. I originally bought them with the intention of us taking our paints out and about with us, but quickly discovered that the kids LOVE them and they sparked lots of creative activities including these watercolour indent valentines cards.   I am a big fan of homemade cards and hope to pass that on to the children and always make the husband a card.


Microwave Clay Heart Shaped Ring Dish 7

We first used microwave drying clay with our Christmas fingerprint decorations and we totally fell for it, so decided to give it a try for the microwave clay heart shaped ring dish.  The microwave clay is much lighter weight that standard air drying clay, in fact is has almost no weight to it, but it is easier to work with for smaller children and it isnt as fibrous as standard air drying clay.  A big bonus is it dried a beautiful bright white too.
