Card Patterns Sketch 151 and colourQ challenge 123

First of all, I have to thank the colourQ team for picking my card in challenge #150. I have to thank everyone for all the comments you left on that card, they are much much much appreciated!

I created this card using the colors of the colourQ challenge and the sketch of Card Patterns Sketch.

I stamped the flowers with Peach Parfait Classic Ink on regular Whisper White cardstock. The reason I am clearing this up is because I painted the flowers with watercolor, using the aquapainter, with the bristles just damp to prevent the paper from peeling off. If you use the bristles that way and if you don't touch the outline of the flowers, you won't have any problem painting watercolor on regular cardstock and with classic ink.

Of course that if you don't want to take the risk, you can use watercolor paper and StaZon ink, and you can play it safe. But if you want to give yourself a challenge, give it a try. It is so much fun!

Have a great day! Enjoy!

Lili
