Mojo 199 On the Grow

The image I used on this card has been sitting on my craft table for weeks now.  I couldn't decide what paper to use or how to use it until yesterday's MOJO came out. Well, I still wasn't sure what paper I was going to use.  After looking through ALL of my paper, I finally decided.  I hope you like it.
Card Recipe:
Stamps:  On the Grow, Watercolor Trio (sentiement)
Paper:     from my local craft store
Ink:         various SU markers
Other:     Chantilly Lace (SU), pearls, dimensionals
               Spellbinders circles and scalloped circles
               sticky strip, MS punch
Technique Tips:
     - For watercoloring, I took my SU marker and scribbled on one of my clear acrylic blocks.  Then I took my watercolor marker, swabbed it in the ink on the block and colored.  It is easier to me than using the tops of the ink pads.  I also get the color lighter if necessary.
     -  I used dimensionals under both the picture and the sentiment.
     -  I used sticky strip and ruched the ribbon.
     -  The sketch suggested using a bow, but with my ribbon being ruched, the bow didn't look right, so I opted not to use it.

That's it for me!  Have a wonderful Tuesday.
