Watercolor Hello

I saw this "Flowers Everywhere" stamp by Penny Black and I just HAD to have it!!! It was screaming to be watercolored...and even though I had never watercolored anything in my life, I had to give it a go! For my first try, I guess it isn't too bad. I used my AquaPen and watercolored with SU Classic ink pads...Real Red, Creamy Caramel, Going Gray, Basic Grey, Apricot Appeal, Only Orange, Bashful Blue and Buckaroo Blue. The card base is Apricot Appeal with SU's Apple Cider DSP and Real Red. The image is stamped on watercolor paper using Momento Tuxedo Black.
I'm not quite sure what I'll do with the card yet- it might be a birthday card for the May Birthday RAK group I'm in ...or I might send it to my senior friend, Miss Laura...who knows.
