Magazine Mondays-Week Nine & lawnscaped!!

The inspiration photo for this card is based on Papercrafters, Magazine Mondays Week 9 challenge.
Also, at LawnScaping , this week's challenge, Challenge #59 - Coloring.
A perfect oppurtunity to pair these two up.

The week passed by fogged by cold and allergies.
Saturday morning till afternoon was spent, "celebrating" my kids graduation from Kindergarden.
An IHOP breakfast, where we got a table after 1/2 hr and it became a brunch by the time the food arrived.
Then began the hunt for formal clothes for the little one, for daddy's graduation ceremony, this week.
And a birthday in the evening.. Ah.. a hectic but good day..
So finally I could sit down to transfer the inspiration to some form, only late night..

I had just purchased a set of Pearlescent water colors. This one to be exact. From Aaron Brothers.
My son was too thrilled that, he "got" an Artist coloring set, from an Art shop. :-)
Since he was with me, this automatically became his.
So late saturday night, we sat down and he graciously allowed me to borrow his colors..  Kids rule the world, dont they?



The magazine monday's inspiration photo is below. What stuck me, about it was the Asian looking girl, and the blue,sand, and the orange in the boat..
This  Japanese cherry blossoms, from Hampton Art was waiting to be inaugurated.. And so fit my inspiration..
So went with the lovely stamp and water colors.
My first attempt at uncontrolled water color drips. Went with how the colors developed.. Then colored the flowers using pearlescent sandy brown and a few with fuscia..

Here is a shot of the card :
