SCS Challenge Card


I had a little bit of time to stamp today and came up with this card for today's SCS color challenge. The flowers were embossed with white ep and then I used the new watercolor technique; which I don't know the true name of! Sorry I have seen so many different names for this technique - if anyone out there knows the correct name - email me!! I found it easier to put a little bit of water on the image with my water color brush and then added the color with the Aqua Pen. I felt it gave me more control over the amount of water on the image. After I inked up one of the butterfly image with Summer Sun, I took a Only Orange marker and added some color along the edges. Here's the details:

Stamp Sets: Oval All, Soft Summer, Great Friend
Ink Pads & Reinkers: Kiwi Kiss, Only Orange, Summer Sun, Old Olive
Papers: Retired Summer Sun, Kiwi Kiss, Summer Sun, Whisper White
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Only Orange Eyelets & Ribbon, CAD, Silver Cording, Water Color Brush, Aqua Painter, White EP, Heat Gun, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, Scissors, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini-Glue Dots
