Playing with Watercolor pencils

I made this card for a client for Mother's day. I was so happy with the way it turned out and I wanted to share it with you :-)
The stamp is Hero Arts Hydrangea. I stamped the image with Browm ink and colored it in with Prisma water color pencils and used a blender pen to blend and spread the color. When using pencils, you just need to add spots of color and then use a blender pen, water brush or paint brush with water to spread the color. There is no need to actually color in the whole image with the pencils. I used a spellbinders die to cut out the card as well as the frame and center image section. The butterfly is a Martha Stuart punch and the sentiment is a Stampin Up stamp.
