Slice of happiness

I love the colors of my card. So summery! Even though I colored slices of citrus, the background reminds me of sherbet. Hmmmm. Now I have a craving.

This was my first time trying the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. They didn't work too well on the Ranger water color paper as is, which surprised me. They almost seemed like they were nearly out of ink already. But once I added water, it was much better. I tried them on regular 80 lb cardstock, and they blended just fine without water. So, my verdict is that at this point I prefer Distress Inks for water coloring. 

This was also the first time I used the iridescent sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I love them! I'm so excited that Paulina is going to release new colors next month.

I am entering my card into two challenges:

Thanks for looking, and have an awesome day! :)
