Manhattan Flower Card

Do you ever wish you were an artist?  Do you ever wish you could be a kid again?  Well, you can when crafting with Stampin' Up! products.  For this card, I had a great time reverting back in time when I water colored these beautiful flowers and it was so easy!  I made a pool of ink by pressing my thumb on the back of my ink pad in the middle.  Once I opened up my ink pad, there was a pool of ink on the lid for me to use.  I just picked up my ink color with an Aquapainter and used the ink to color in the flowers.  You can make them darker or lighter by adding more or less water and ink to the image.  Tip: you need to be careful when applying the ink to your water color paper though.  If you add too much water or get too close to the edge of your embossed image, the water/ink will cover your nicely embossed lines.  Unfortunately, it happened a few times for me but I still love the way this card turned out.
