Water Colored Happy Easter

Happy Wednesday Peeps!!

Yesterday I was not feeling the best and I went into my bedroom to lay down for a bit but I was restless and it did not last long. I was up and at my craft desk fairly quickly and decided I would color.

I was inspired by Rita Wright and the pics she has been posting on Instagram to pull out this set. It is the Stampin Up Indescribable Gift set. I love this flower and decided I would try and watercolor with my distress inks.
I stamped the image with Black Stazon onto some water color paper and begin to color.
I squished some Picked Raspberry ink onto an acrylic block and used my water brush to color.
I used Mowed Lawn for the leaves and for the branch I used some Vintage Photo.

I used my heat gun to dry the flower before starting the background.
I used Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry for the Background.
I stamped the sentiment with Black Memento ink and added a few sequins to finish it up.
I trimmed the piece down a bit and added it to my white card base.

I am linking this card to a couple of challenges one is the CASology Spring Challenge


The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe

I used the bottom line, Flowers, any shade of Pink and Polka Dots, that is if you can count my dots around my flower as polka dots. :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

I absolutely love every card you make. How do you decide which inks, colors & papers to use since you seem to incorporate different companies?
