New Ai Watercolour Minis

The Art Impressions Design Team are showing off the three newly released Watercolour Mini sets for Spring 2016 today.  Here are a couple of square cards that I made with Watering Can (Sku #4761):
 I know, they're pretty much identical - the real difference is that the first one is using regular watercolour paper, and the second is using smooth watercolour paper.  They both were easy to use, and the end result was fine.  I found that the regular paper gave more of a watercolour appearance, the Tombow markers softened and blended really well.  The smooth paper allowed me to keep a little more of the detail of the flowers, and that's fine, too!

 I used the two flowers and the watering can that came in the set, and added the large grass and trailing foliage from the Foliage Set (Sku #4051).  Our current challenge on the Ai blog is Watercolour + White Gel Pen - I used a white gel pen on my cards, to put the flower centers back on, and to add a little lightness to the hydrangeas.  You can link up your creation over on the Ai blog and check out what the rest of the DT has to share!
