Timeless Tuesday Meets Color Challenge

This is a "two for one special" for the Color Challenge on SCS (More Mustard, Midnight Muse, Old Olive with dessert option to watercolor) and for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge where it's all about shine and glitter.  I dry embossed the Manhatten Flower EF by SU on 90 lb. watercolor paper then scribbled a yellow watercolor crayon in the widest open sections of the roses.  I then took my Aquapainter and pulled color off my More Mustard ink pad and shaded in the petals.  Continuing with my Aquapainter, I painted some Old Olive ink around the roses' outline then spritzed some dark blue color using a Tombow #528 marker and SU's spritzer tool (or "spitter" as I affectionately call it - lol).  I then sprayed the entire surface with Tattered Angels "Dazzling Diamonds" Glimmer Mist to add the glitter element.  It doesn't show up really well, but it's there!  I just love the "teeny weeny" sentiments in Flourishes' new Old Fashioned Florals set - just perfect for the tiny tag punch by SU!  I'm a novice with watercoloring and always love the look, so this was another chance for me to practice this coloring technique.
