This challenge was combined with using the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #459.
This week my neighbor and I attended the National Coloring Book Day at Scraps of Love in Pioria, AZ and met Jean Chaney, who shared talent with us in different coloring medias... and for one of the water coloring techniques introduced only required a purchase of a water pen... and I was on my way.
After stamping and masking several flowers on white cardstock for my focal point, and using the CTMH inks in the challenge, I nervously put the water pen in hand and started coloring the flowers. It felt comfortable using the water pen because there was better control of the amount of water used on the images. There was no warping of the cardstock...plus I didn't even use special water coloring card stock.
The rest of the card was pretty easy to put together, just needed to select a pretty combination of design papers. The die-cut sentiment was added to the tag, and a butterfly stamped on design paper, fussy-cut, adhered to tag with 3D thin foam tape, and rhinestones added to the body of the butterfly.
Photos above are a closer view of the butterfly and decorated the inside of the card with the same flowers and butterfly in the bottom corner.
