Penny Black Flowers for the Color Challenge...

So it's day 2 of the Daily Marker Color Challenge
and I felt the need to use my new Misti!

Placing the Penny Black floral stamp on the Misti and using Distress Markers I colored strong colors and then misted it with water. Folded the Misti closed onto water color paper and this is the card!

I find the colors are not always the same as I started once the water is added. In this case the green and blue for the leaves and stems made for a muted teal tone.
Luckily I had some of that exact color in patterned paper.
Layered it up and cut the "Happy Birthday" out of red using my Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz Sizzix dies. 

This challenge is a great way to stock up on cards that I need. I was very low on birthday cards.
 Wonder what I will do tomorrow! 
Check back...also try your own color challenge.
