Color Throwdown #331

A card for Color Throwdown 

PTI's Friendly Flowers, Wet Paint sentiment in Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst, Simply Chartreuse and Classic Kraft.

PTI's February 2015 Blog Hop

I usually have this all made up before hand and completely forgot about it until yesterday.
But after working in the yard for a couple hours all I could do is sit down, read and take a nap....
So this is what I came up with this morning.
I used Clear Wink of Stella and Distress Inks to watercolor this.  It is a technique that Jennifer McGuire showed on her blog.  Love the effect and the shine that it gives to the card.
PTI's Botanical Blocks, white & black cardstock, 3 Rainstones
Distress Inks Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar

I used a technique from Jennifer McGuire which you can access Here 
Using Distress pens and Wink of Stella as the water which gives it this really cool sparkly effect, which is hard to see in the picture.  She even tells you how to get more out of your Wink of Stella pens by putting water in them after it is almost empty.
