Watercolored Cutie

Good Afternoon everyone!
I've noticed several challenges with a Red, White & Blue color theme going on so I thought I would play along!  
This adorable image is from Lili of the Valley!  I colored her skin with Copics and the rest of the image is watercolored.  It's so fun to break out the watercolors every once in awhile and I need to do it more often because I love to watercolor!! :)   The bg is embossed with the Sizzix Dots folder and the postage stamp sentiment/die cut is from Whimsy Stamps.  I also watercolored a few paper flowers and I like how they turned out... they remind me of tie-die!  The dp is from K&Company, the pearls, button and ribbon are from my stash.  
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
