#ColourJuly Day 28: You Choose! by DT member Jo Nevill

It's day 28 of the Kuretake UK #ColourJuly Art Challenge and today's theme is "You Choose". A nice easy challenge for you to get your creative juices flowing !

I've been itching to use these gorgeous stamps by WPlus9 which are right up my street ! 
and, here is how I made my card !
I firstly stamped all the flowers and leaves out I wanted onto a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock.  Out of all my watercolor card, I find this one the best to use with the Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens.
I then die cut the flowers and leaves with the matching dies.
I then painted the flowers with Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens.  I like to scribble on an acrylic block and paint the ink onto the the card. If I want to add depth of colour I then use the pen directly onto the card in the place I want the colour.  I find this technique works best for me.
Heat emboss the sentiment onto a piece of black card with white embossing powder.
I added some splats of black mist to the background and a couple of stamped zig zags.  Arranged the flowers onto another piece of watercolor card and added the sentiment.  The final touch was to add some sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella pen.

Go on, have a go and enter the challenge !!!
