Uniko - Sponsor AAA Cards ....

.... Good morning! Uniko is sponsoring AAA Cards - AAA#84 where the challenge is to use WATERCOLOUR. At first I wasn't quite sure what to do for this challenge as I've recently used my Brusho crystals a lot. I decided to colour the wonderful mandala from Marvellous Mehndi with my Zig Watercolour brushes:

Stamps: Uniko - Marvellous Mehndi, All Occasion Sentiments #3, Simply Said
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Certainly Celery, Smoky Slate
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Squares #6
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card & DP - Certainly Celery; Tim Holtz Water Colour Card; Zig Clean Color Brushes; White Embossing Powder; Spectrum Noir Sparkle - Clear

I die cut a square of water colour card and used my MISTI to position the mandala in the centre of the panel. I stamped the image in Versamark and heat embossed it with white powder. Then I had lots of fun using my Zig brushes and an aqua brush to colour it. I got the inspiration for the pastel colours from the photo challenge at Inkspirational - INK#128. I'm also submitting to Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge - HLSWC#02.  I finished the panel by adding a simple greeting in black ink. I layered the image on some pale green card and attached it all to a square card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale green design paper and on the white card I added a bold greeting along with a few more images from Marvellous Mehndi.

After I put the card together I decided that it needed a little sparkle. I used my clear Spectrum Noir brush to add some sparkle to the mandala - you can just about see it in the close-up photo below:
