PTI MIM and May Blog Hop: Artsy Watercolouring + Aqua & Melon -- Thinking of you

This week's Make it Monday over at Papertrey Ink is all about watercolouring over dye ink stamped images.  I took this as a jumping off point and combined it with the colour combination for this month's blog hop:
May-Blog-Hop-Inspiration
Gorgeous colours, right?  I took out some stamp sets, inks, my aqua brush and watercolour paper and started getting inky.

I did a slightly different take on the watercolouring technique Betsy shared and stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black and then outlined messily with Studio Calico Coral Bay and Jenni Bowlin Speckled Egg dye inks with an aqua brush.
I then stamped on the edges with an Irrestible Ikat image.  Super simple card but fun to make!
I added it to a kraft card base and that's it ...  I like how you can see the texture of the watercolour paper ... something a little different from the usual smooth card stock ...
