ADFD Challenge #131 - Inspiration Board

Hello to you on this lovely Wednesday.  Today I'm participating in the A Day For Daisies Inspiration Board Challenge #131.  

This is my first water colored card, I've played around before, but nothing I was willing to show anyone.  Water coloring is not easy for me, as it's difficult to control..and I'm an in the lines type colorer.  However, I used my zig pens and water, which I really enjoy the look.  The bottles and background, I used a lot of water and let the ink move.  The flowers, I used only the pens and no water, so they remained bolder.  I like the look of the two ways using these pens combined!

I used Tim Holtz Distress Water Color Cardstock, MFT Lavender Fields and Core-Di'Nations Gold Cardstock for mounting.  Finished off with a little May Arts mustard twine and some BoBunny gems/pearls.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll join in the challenge over at ADFD, their images are fabulous!
