Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge

I think I am finally back on track and able to participate in challenges. This week Pals Paper Arts brings us a color challenge. The color challenge is Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze and Perfect Plum. I also decided with this card to incorporate Shelli's New Year's challenge. The challenge is start the new year off by trying something new this month--a new technique, a new product, a new medium. . . anything new. I decided to dust off my aqua painters and try my hand at water coloring. I have to say once I started, I couldn't stop. It wasn't as intimidating as I thought! The key is use a thicker card stock, like our water color paper or confetti white. The next thing is use use your reinkers. Another tip is to use Staz-on ink or wait for the Basic Black ink to dry before you start watercoloring.

So I am happy to say after some trial and error here is my card along with the ingredients to make it:
Stamp Sets: Awash with Flowers, For All You Do
Ink: Black Staz-on, Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz
Paper: Baja Breeze Patterns Designer Series Paper, Confetti White, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Baja Breeze Seam Binding and Buttons
Tools: Scallop Border Punch, Aqua Painter
