I am new to card making/scrapping.. and love all the things I have seen other people post.. I am drawn to the watercolor things.. I have some inexpensive watercolor paints that I have used on a couple card backgrounds and things, but not very precise on smaller things. What does everyone suggest I purchase to use? What is your favorite? I'm learning blending..so what do you find works best?

Thank you to everyone.. ~hugs~

I work a lot with water-based coloring too.
I use watercolor pencils, watercolors, distress inks and watercolor crayons (distress crayons and gelatos) and I tend to use them all together.
One item that really helps me out in all of this, is masking fluid, so that's my recommendation.
Couldn't have done this without masking fluid.

I have Color Bursts (like powdered water color medium) and love the way they move. I love to play with water color and find that Zig's Clean Color brush tip water color pens have a bit more control.

I Love working with water color pencils...mostly on my Adorn it cards...I use the Derwent WC pencils, then using a damp brush I blend....I have more control this way then with WC paints.
