Girlie Magnolias

After blinding you with zingy 'Zig-a-zig-ahhh' Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in my last post here, I thought I'd calm it down today with some soft, girlie pink.

This is Altenew's stamp set 'Magnolias For Her' again. Last time here, I coloured in using lemony Zig Clean Color markers. 
On this card I've used my Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils.

As before, I've embossed on watercolour card with clear embossing powder.

Instead of colouring the image and then adding water, this time I wet the pencil nib to grab colour, created puddles of colour on my craft sheet, then applied to my stamped images and added just clean water to fade out the colour.

I found using a teeny paint brush easier than a water-pen brush. I think I tend to squeeeeeeeze too much water out.

I then got all arty-farty and flicked some of the pink across my card blank, fussy cut the coloured images and added to my card.

 A few randomly scattered pink pearl gems, this is the hardest et voila!
