PTI MIM and Blog Hop - Artsy Watercolouring and Melon/Aqua: thankful for you

I decided to combine the watercolouring technique from the Make it Monday over at Papertrey Ink and the colour combination from this month's blog hop:
I stamped a bunch of Mini Bloom flowers with Studio Calico Coral Bay and Jenni Bowlin Speckled Egg, adding a Signature Greetings II sentiment and leaves with Hero Arts Soft Granite.
I used the In Bloom impression plate to add some texture to the panel after a little watercolouring around the flowers ... kept it messy and a bit uneven for an 'artsier' look ... not that making it even would've been that easy! :)
I mounted this to a mid tone gray card base ... love this shade with these colours - hopefully PTI will come out with a colour like this soon ....

I also have some Project Life cards from the Midnight collection as well.

Paper: Canon watercolour paper, SU Basic Gray
Stamps: Mini Blooms, Signature Greetings II
Ink: Studio Calico Coral Bay, Jenni Bowlin Speckled Egg, Hero Arts Soft Granite
Misc: In Bloom impression plate
