My card used this cute little Watering-can and flowers and I chose green and lilac as my main colours.

I use my Tombow Markers because they are water-based  and I can colour my digi images without smudging the black outlines or transferring printer ink onto my Copics nibs. ( that's the problem with an ink-jet printer) Using a few patches of colour on an acrylic block, mix in some water and depending on how 'dark' you want your colour, you can layer the colour onto your image , deepening the shadows bit by bit until you get the colour depth you want. I think it gives that nice 'water-colour' feel to the finished project. The image was matted to a green gingham scalloped piece of card and popped up on some dimensional adhesive pads.

My card is an A5 white cardbase, a white doilly cut to fit, a strip of purple from my stash and piece of lighter lilac card stock and some hand made flowers. A few 'leaves' cut from green mulberry paper  and die-cut gold flourish completes the embellishment.
