Happy Friday! Waffle Flower has released a new water media mat a few days ago. It’s the perfect mat for water coloring and today I join an awesome video hop where we all feature the new mat! Hop along with us to find out all about this new product, to see it in action, to get inspired and of course for a chance to win prizes.

It’s a silicon mat made especially for your water coloring needs, really easy to clean and with a handy palette. The fact that it is white lets you see the true colors on your palette and it’s really easy to take it with you on the go.

There are many advantages in using this mat and I discuss about all the features on the video below where I do a review of the mat. I also put it to the test with different mediums so you can see how to use and clean it.

While reviewing the new mat I just had to make a card. For water coloring I used my good old distress inks in various colors. The stamp I used is a new Waffle Flower – We Herd( SBC | SSS | ELH ) , which you can get as a bundle including the stamps and dies or separately.
