Spring Challenge

Susan Sieracki is hosting the Mod Squad challenge today and the challenge is to make a spring card. Today I used an image from the sponsor (Sparkle N Sprinkle)

I colored the image very simply and matted in black. The background is done on watercolor paper. I lightly sprinkled on a tiny bit of Brusho ink crystals the spritzed with pearlized water. I have some great pearlized watercolor I got from Dick Blick. I add 1/3 of it to 2/3 water for my spray. Back to the can barely see the powder, then you spritz and whalla! The color is so intense you only need a little.
