Watercoloring 101

Hi'ya peeps! Hope you are having a great Saturday afternoon. I finally got rid of my headache so I could do something to show you.
This is my first time watercoloring with SU Aqua pens. WOW! seem to be easy and I'll need more practice at it. But I love the outcome of this card.
I started out with SU Soft Summer from the Occasions mini catty. If you don't have one, be sure to ask your super duper demo for one at your next SAS or workshop. You'll be glad you did. It's a GREAT mini. Anyways, I chose the dogwood blossoms for this card. I started out with Stazon Black on Watercolor Paper. Used Old Olive, Postitively Pink, Pretty in Pink and YoYo Yellow inks to color in with the aqua pens. THEN (why I don't know) I cut the image out. Now if you didn't have a headache before you cut this out, you would when you were done. I made the base card in Old Olive matted with Pretty in Pink and again in Old Olive. I knotted Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon and added some pearls. The sentiment is from Soft Summer also. To finish it off, I added a few pearls. I popped up the flower/stem with pop dots.
I hope you like my card today. AND as always, have a great day and keep on stampin, it's good for the soul. Thanks so much for stoppin by.

See? I know you could use aqua pens!! THey take some getting used to but they make colors so much softer :) The cards turned out great!!!
