I really liked the card that was done using the Merci stamp set in Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration brochure, so I decided to attempt it. I changed a couple things. I didn't have all the supplies needed to make it exactly. I used Old Olive for the base. I used my SU markers to color in the image and an aqua painter to blend the colors. I tore the edges of the water color paper. I crumpled the Ruby Red and tore some of the edges. I didn't like they way the More Mustard looked behind the watercolor paper, so I decided to use it for the Happy Birthday image. I took some white taffeta ribbon and colored it using my Bordering Blue SU marker. I didn't know where I wanted to put it so I just put it in the corner. All and all I was pleased with this card. I really liked how the water coloring turned out. I don't do that very often, but this image is perfect for that technique. I think I am going to use this card in the workshop I am having next week.
