Prettie Color Challenge

Here is a card I made for one of the challenges from our Prettie Pajama Party last night. The challenge was to use Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Pink Pirouette (or similar colors). This is what I came up with. I watercolored the image with an Aquapainter. Have I mentioned how I forgot how much I love to watercolor? I really just love it. It's so much faster than regular coloring with markers! I used my oval Nestabilities for the focal image and the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder for the Kiwi Kiss piece. I love how the Cuttlebug folders can add so much to an otherwise plain piece of paper. Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Simply Special, Made With Love (Paper Pretties); Paper- Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette (SU); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss (SU); Accessories- Aquapainter, Oval scallop and plain Nestabilities (Spellbinders), duo satin ribbon (May Arts), Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder (Provocraft); Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"

I've been using old fashioned water coloring again lately too. I'm not sure Copics are my cup of tea. The colors ROCK! And you made such a beautiful card with them.
