Mojo Friendship 182

I hope everybody has had a great weekend.
This week is a relaxing one here in South Florida because there is no school, it's Spring Break!
I continue using flowers in my cards, spring is in the air. The flowers in this particular card have been stamped in StazOn and painted with Aquapainters. To paint, I apply a little ink from the markers on a hard surface (such as the back of the Stamp-a-ma-jig). Then, with the bristles of the Aquapainters just damped, dip slightly in the ink and paint. It's very important that there isn't much water in the bristles because you're not painting on a watercolor paper; which means that if you soak the paper with water it's going to peel off and eventually break.
I hope you can practice painting with Aquapainters, it's so much fun!
