"In This Together" for the Paper Players.....

Hello everyone: This week's challenge with The Paper Players is right up my alley because it calls for water coloring, which is just about my favorite medium.  I chose a brand new Stampin Up! set called In This Together , this delightful set arrived at my house last week and I just LOVE IT!!!
Here is the card I made with one of the images for the challenge.
I chose very soft water coloring, using as always, my Stampin Up! markers and the Aqua Painter. I added a bit of bling to her fabulous coat with some Rhine Stones and one teeny, tiny SU pearl to her pretty purse.  Here is a close up, doesn't she look just so pretty?
I hope you like this card and I thank you so much for visiting my blog. I want you to know I appreciate wholeheartedly your comments and, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me. I'm not an expert, by any stretch of the imagination but I do love this craft.
Here is the banner for the Paper Players
and the list of materials I used to create this card.
Paper: Canson water color paper, Lily of the Valley DSP.
SU Markers: Rich Razzleberry, More Mustard, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Regal Rose, Elegant Eggplant and Sahara Sand. The brads and Rhine Stones are from my stash and the little pearl on her purse, is from SU.
Thank you again for visiting today, I have another project for another challenge I'm entering, I will post it soon.
Have a wonderful week.
Maria.

Thank you Patti, this stamp set is absolutely sweet and cute and fabulous to color. The Rhine Stones were added after I took the first picture, I thought that pretty coat needed some bling.
Thank you for your sweet comment.
Hugs.

Thank you so much Brian, I really love this stamp set, I'm so happy I got it. I still need to learn to take better pictures, I wish the blue background was more visible.
Thank you for visiting my dear, I truly appreciate it.

I always love your watercoloring Maria. I love the way you do your shading - especially in areas like the inside of her coat. Beautiful colors too! :)
