Basically Soft skaters

HI there. I'm still sniffling and coughing, but I was able to get a card done for today's color challenge in between laundry loads. Nothing like multi tasking :) I would have never put a dark gray with these two pastel colors, but oh my it so works!!!! I got this layout from Marie's wonderful blog. My image is stamped on watercolor paper so I could use my aquapainter and SU markers to color everything in. I'm sad that this set is going to retire at the end of December. It's definitely one of my favs. I know that it will always have a place on my stamp shelf. I thought that the swirl from Baroque Motifs kinda looked like skate lines and twirls on the ice! OH and I went over their skate blades with my Sakura pen. Dancing with the Stars finale is tonight. I swear if Marie wins I'll scream. Her dances were horrible last night. Celine Dion is the guest star tonight. I heard a rumor that she wants to be on the show next year. Kinda cool! Happy stamping!!!!

How exactly did you use the aquapainter with the SU markers? I'd love to get the effect you did here on this card. It is absolutely beautiful!!
