Just One More CCMC194

I just had to enter this card for Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge 194 also!  These flowers were yet again a project that had been sitting on my desk for ages just waiting to get used. I made them using the watercolor bleed technique.  It is soooo much fun!  If you havn't tried it, you simply must.  The results are always fabulous!  The technique calls for reinkers and my stash is limited, but I used what I had and I'm in love with the final product.  For these particular flowers I used Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink.  The link to the technique should lead you over to Splitcoaststampers and you can follow the step-by-step instructions there!  Fun, fun, fun!  I used white shimmer paper for the flowers because it seems to be a little sturdier than regular white cardstock and the technique calls for you to mist the paper with water.  I also sprayed the backround Bashful Blue piece with Champagne Shimmer Paint mist to give even more sparkle, although you can't tell from the photos.  I wish it would photograph better because the extra shimmer is so darn pretty!
