Watercolor Inside and Out

Well, I sure have been missing for awhile....
May is (and has been) a super busy month for us...
Ball, soccer , 5 birthdays, a wedding and a bridal shower...
and more to come.... 
 
So. to get me back in the "mood", I did this card for the
challenge at the Moxie Fab World which ends tonight...
 
 
I used some of my TH distress pens and water to color my flowers
I first stamped with Versamark and embossed with black EB powder...
on watercolor paper.....I colored my flowers in and cut them out...
same with the butterfly...
I spritzed water on my craft mat, and scribbled the pens on the mat
using a water brush I first wet my watercolor paper, then "painted" in the colors....
 
And since my friend "Dar" at Dar's Crafty Creations has inspired me
to finish the inside of my card, I did just that, using 3 more of the watercolor flowers
 
 
Also for a bit of "shine" to my flowers I painted on a bit of Stickles Rock Candy
on the edges of my petals......see ya later
