Pals Paper Arts Challenge

I thought I would try this challenge this week at Pals Paper Arts:
I have gone  a bit brighter this week and also used a Stamp Set that I haven't used before - Kimono Kids.
To get the scallop effect  at the top I used an the verandah idea from Debbie Airey in last weeks Just Add Ink Challenge. I also embossed the images in black before colouring them in to give greater definition and makes the water colouring a little easier.

This is  a side on view to see the verandah effect, I cut out each of the lanterns and hung them from the verandah.
Card:  Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Very Vanilla
Ink:  Tempting Turquoise, Versamark, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Ribbon, Buttons and Punches
