Father's Day Mallard ~ CCMC410 & PP298

Hello everyone and welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary color challenge!  
I chose to go masculine with our colors this week so I've also joined up with the Paper Players 298, which is a Father's Day challenge.  
I water-colored practically everything on this card, except the embossed background!  

I inked the bird in black Stazon on watercolor paper and used my aquapainter to apply the color.  I used Crumb Cake on the body and darkened it a bit with some Soft Suede.  
I also sponged some Soft Suede ink over the Crumb Cake Boho Chic embossed layer.  I love the dimension this gives.  
For the Bermuda Bay panel, I stamped the leaf image onto watercolor cardstock with the archival black ink.  I thought this image looked kinda like a feather.  Then I spritzed it down and ran my brayer loaded with Bermuda ink over it.  I then took my aquapainter and dropped little drops of water all over the whole panel.  I let it dry and like the effect it gave.  I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink as well.  I used the same process to make the little yellow strip of paper.  

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: The Wilderness Awaits, Thoughtful Banners, Botanical Blooms
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Stazon and Archival black
paper: Watercolor, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Linen Thread, Dimensionals, Boho Chic EF

I hope you find time to play along with us for this week's color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!  
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
