YELLOW AND GREY

I had Fusion's latest challenge in mind when I started creating this card a few days ago - unfortunately I procrastinated too long and missed the deadline.  So on to plan B - Paper Players has a "girly thanks" challenge and The Challenge colors are the same.
I have succumbed to buying more watercolors - this time it's the Kuretake Clear Color Brush Pens - love love love them - so easy to use.  The flower is Divine from Penny Black stamped in Ranger Archival ink.  The watercolored piece (die cut with MFT stitched rectanges) was mounted on HA wet cement layering paper and then on PTI soft stone.  The sentiment is from HA Messages with a Flourish stamped on PTI vellum in HA black dye ink.  This is my first attempt in watercoloring with these pens and finally feel quite successful in watercoloring.


Beverley suggested I add this to the challenge at Uniko Studios which is "flowers" - thanks, Beverley!

Thanks for stopping by and love to read your comments.  Betty
