MIM #125: Defined Watercolors & cQc #198

This card is about as CAS as it comes, but there is a reason for that.  I was intrigued by this week's Make It Monday to create defined watercolors.  I actually think Erin's tutorial to use an aqua painter to apply watercolor ink directly to the stamp is brilliant.  I love how the watercolors bled a bit when I stamped them, and then edging it again in ink defined everything.  I figured this flower would be my practice round, but it turned out so pretty that I decided to not only use it but make it the focal point of my card.  I finished it off with a sentiment that will allow me to use this card for any occasion...love those kinds of cards.  This beautiful color palette was inspired by this week's ColourQ Challenge.

Supplies
Stamps: PTI (Daydreamer, Round & Round)
Ink: PTI (Hawaiian Shores), SU! (Blue Bayou, Kiwi Kiss, Purely Pomegranate)
Paper: watercolor paper
Other: SU! (Aqua Painter)
