Watercolour Easter

Yesterday's Friday Mashup was to use Daffodil Delight, Perfect Plum and Wild Wasabi with a Blender Pen or Aqua Painter to create a watercolour effect.  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week also.

I have given the directions below - but I wanted to note that for the Cotton Ribbon, I used the Aquapainter and reinker, just like I did for the flower background.  I was able to deepen the colour a bit more and I found that it "soaked" into the fabric better than applying colour with a marker.

Hope you have a fabulous Saturday - I've got a workshop this afternoon and then I'm going to start    re-painting some baseboards - gotta love Spring Break!
Thanks for stopping in!
