Color Dare #197 ~ Pacifica, Canary plus White

Yea! It's Friday! Ready for a new Color My Heart challenge? Well here you go! This color dare features Pacifica and Canary with White Daisy.

I knew I wanted to use a water pen technique to color the image, so I used Pacifica pigment ink to stamp the image on watercolor paper then clear embossed. That is the great thing about pigment inks! You can pair up any pigment ink color with clear embossing power! Next up was adding some color to the image. I used my Small Round Waterbrush to pick up ink from the lid of the Canary and Pacifica ink pads. Then I simply painted the areas I wanted some color.

I distressed the edges and then wiped them across the Pacifica ink pad. After that it was a matter of layering and adding some yellow sequins.
