30 Day Coloring Challenge Day 16

Welcome to Day 16 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  I needed a birthday card for a friend so I decided to do some more loose water coloring of the Cling Cyclamen stamp by Stampendous.  I used Distress Inks again, but pinks this time.  (I previously colored this image in red for Day 11 here.)  So I actually finished a card instead of just coloring the image and saving it for later. I used a stitched die to cut out the panel after water coloring the flowers, mounted it onto some DP and then onto the card base.  I added the die cut sentiment and some sequins.

This loose water coloring technique is fun.  I definitely found it relaxing and plan to use it more in the future.  It gives a nice soft look to images.

Card stock:  Recollections 110 lb white
Designer Paper:  My stash
Inks:  Distress Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive; Memento Tuxedo Black
Dies:  My stash (happy birthday) & Fawn Lawn Stitched Rectangles
Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh

In addition to posting at the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, I also entering some others.
