In the spirit of often submitting a second CC card, I've combined it with today's challenges (WCW and SC) and the ABC16-I is for insect. I wasn't going to include that but as I'm rummaging for some sequins, I discovered the SU lady bug trinkets, never used, thought to myself, 'PERFECT!'
I decided to use the colors to paint leaves. Linda provided the part 2 video from last week. Excellent video! She knows how to teach. I used the reinkers for rich razzleberry, daffodil delight and pacific point. They blend well because they're basically primary colors. So I purposely mixed the colors a bit, letting one bleed into the next. My leaves turned out rather skinny because I resisted using too much pressure on the brush. It was a challenge figuring out how much water to paint ratio to use (I did use a damp brush to remove some color here and there). I will keep practicing so I can get fatter leaves. I really enjoyed combining these challenges.
As far as the sketch goes, the ladybugs sort of represent where the stars are in the sketch.

Oh, wow! I love that you painted the colors in the CC colors! Absolutely stunning! I agree, I had trouble at times with how much water to use. Your leaves look fabulous and I love the lady bugs. So fun to add watercolor lines to your design.
