MIM #125

It's Monday, and that means MIM #125. 
This week Erin Lincoln shows us the technique of "Defined Watercolors".
Picking a stampset was easy. Simple Sunflowers had the full shape that would work with
watercolors as well as stamped ink definition.
Popped up a few of the elements, and added Dawn's 'Boutique Borders, Thanks'.
Also used a few copic  pens on the die cut sunflower.
Loved this technique, watercolors have always been a favorite.
Photo detail shows stems added Sew Simple Borders.
First with watercolors then inked with Simply Chartreuse.
My Minds Eye Chocolate gingham 
A la mode copper embossing powder, Stampendous Peridot embossing powder.
Stash twine and jewels.
All else, Papertrey Ink
