Water Color Backgrounds

Go With the Paper Garden
Last week I was practicing water coloring before my brushes 
and ink arrived from CTMH. I was using my water brush and 
the ink pads. My colors for this card came from the Color My Heart 
challenge: Pacifica and Sweet Leaf. After brushing the colors on some 
Colonial White CS I let it dry under some books so it would lay flat. 
I stamped the flower image from Paper Garden 
in black on the water colored CS. 
Then up came the sketch from Atlantic Hearts, 
so I cut the oval and used the sketch below to make my card. 
My daisies are Cricut cut with tips inked with Pacifica and 
water colored with Pacifica. Then added some faux stitching.
Use this fun sketch to make a card and share with us
There are 3 days left to play along.
CTMH Supplies:
Cardstock: Kraft, Pacifica, Sweet Leaf, Colonial White
Ink: Black, Pacifica, Sweet Leaf
Stamps: Paper Garden, Just to Say
