ColourQ #352

I'm pretty excited... 
My kids and I are driving into Winnipeg today
to attend a Harry Potter Release Party in anticipation of the new book
that's being released tonight at midnight -- it should be fun!

Today, I have a card to share that I made for the current ColourQ challenge:

I love the soft and pretty pattern on this blouse and wanted
to recreate it on my card.

I started with a piece of watercolour paper, on which I heat embossed
the Altenew Painted Flowers outlines in Zing! Butter embossing powder.
I stamped the flowers and leaves in, spritzing them with water first
before stamping for a watercolour effect.
Then, with a paintbrush and water, I painted over them a little to blur
the ink even more.

I added yellow ink mixed with water to my background
and once it was dry, stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Spring Woods)
in versafine onyx black ink three times with my MISTI.

Thanks for looking!
