I printed out one of gorgeous images, they are so detailed and colored her up with Spectrum Noir Pencils (005, 009, 042, 039, 037, 056, 058, 047, 089, 095, 078, 080, 082, 089, 104, 112). The soft coloring you get when you use colored pencils is just fabulous and i love the look it gave this image.

I used a silver sharpie to add a little shine to her beading, arm band and headdress. Next i fussy cut most of the image, leaving the bottom ink or so still surrounded with white card stock.

Then it was time to work on my background! I am so ink to water coloring right now and to i love the smooshing technique, so easy!! First i die cut a stitched rectangle from watercolor paper. Next i used Spectrum Aqua Markers Magenta and Orchid to color a clear block (i did each color separately, letting them dry in between), spritzed some water and used a small piece of acetate to add the color to the watercolor paper.

When it was dry i adhered the watercolor panel to a black card base. Then i added the colored image to the card with foam tape, some tiny sequins and last added the sentiment strip after i rounded the corners.
