My new AcquaPromarkers

Before I had left on vacation last month, I was lucky enough to win a set of the new Acqua Promarkers from Jak's Candy. She had even sent me two stamped images of this beautiful boat scene stamp and now I found me some time to experiment with them, and I can tell you .... they are so easy to use and I just LOVE them!!!! I've always wanted to colour with watercolours, but never seemed to get it right, but now that I got these new pens it seems that my wish has come true :))

Here is my card. I focused my attention on colouring the stamp and ended up keeping it fairly simple, but anyway I didn't want to hide the beautiful paper too. Hope you like it. PS.. Grazzi means Thank You in Maltese.



These are my challenges for today.

1 - Fab 'n' Funky Challenge No 38 - LIVING IN A MATERIAL WORLD .. for the raffia on the side of my card
2 - Crafty Cardmakers Challenge No 29 - CLEAN AND SIMPLE
3 - Cards For Men Challenge No 18 - LONG SUMMER DAYS
4 - Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge - ANYTHING GOES
5 - Kaboodle Doodles Challenge No 39 - PHOTO INSPIRATION.. this one



Thank you for looking today.
