SCS Colour Challenge i {heart} paper style

Kate just got Stampavie images in her store. *squeal* I think she did it as a personal favour for me...but then I could be full up of myself too! *LOL*. Anyhoo, the bottom line is I'm over the moon happy that she has started to carry these images, thrilled that she sent me a few of them, and totally tickled that I opted for watercolouring for the first time in AGES!!!

I used rabbit in a watering can by artist, Tina Wenke. Love it. The cute factor is just out of this world. I decided to use it for the colour challenge on SCS this week, because those purples and olive speak of spring flowers to me ( and I suspect everyone else who did the challenge!!!).

I stamped my image with black soot ink, and set it with clear embossing powder. This ink MUST be sealed or you end up with a smeary, black-ish mess. Experience is speaking to you here... I have got to get some of Kate's memento ink pads so I don't have to worry about the smear factor anymore! Oy vey! The wish list just never seems to shrink, KWIM?

I used reinkers from the following companies to colour the image; distress ink, SU!, and adirondack. In addition, I used both SU! and tombow markers and watercoloured with them as well. Basically, if there is a water based ink anywhere within my reach and it is the right colour, I'll use it!

The dp I used here is from basic grey Origins and has the dessert option of swirls that Betty included in the challenge. The coloured cardstock used here is core'dinations.

Enjoy your day and thank-you so much for stopping by!!!
