Bouquet of Thanks

Good Sunday morning to you!  I have another card to share using the fun Stampendous Build a Bouquet cling set.  This set is so fun to watercolor, that I'm afraid you'll be seeing lots and lots more examples using it........

Watercolor Bouquet

supplies:  Stampendous Build a Bouquet, Floral and Essential Spectrum Aqua markers, water pen, tumbled glass distress ink, watercolor paper, Simon's Surf Blue cardstock, blue gingham from Pebbles Garden Party, Wplus9 thanks die, scallop punch

Gingham has always been dear to me; there's just something so sweet about it, so I thought it would pair nicely with this pretty bouquet in a canning jar.  And I wanted to say how pleased I am with these new Spectrum Aqua markers.  I just scribble a bit of their color onto watercolor paper, and then use a wet brush to move it around on the design.  I mixed several colors, too, and they work beautifully in that respect.  I have another set on my wishlist now, the Natural set, as I need some blues.  (I used tumbled glass distress ink to color my canning jar and bring out the details.)

I'll enter this into the current Curtain Call challenge.
