Friend Card and a Card with mushroom Image :)

I have got this lovely stamp from my lovely friend Vicki..(dear Vicki, many thanks for sending me this stamp... do you know how much I love this sentiment stamp) I was ever thought to buy this stamp but then forgot day at December 2014 I have got a package from Vicki in USA and the inside is this stamp this stamp is for the first time I used on my card:

I stamped the sentiment and embossed it with white embossing powder, then after I masked the white area, 
I started to choose the water color and used the pen brush I started to colored at the top of embossed sentiment. After dry I clean the white sentiment area with baby tissue.

This is the color I have choosen:

Another picture of the complete card:

I like the result of this Kuretake Gansai Tambi Water Color...its more magic than Copic Color (I bought it each piece per piece not complete till today  :) LOL) ...and with this water color.... you only buy it one set also if we go to holiday  we only need to bring a box of water color and some stamped image and then we can colored there easier :)

I love to join the challenge at:

Uniko Challenge #17: Love and Friendship (sdh a. p.)

Amusing Challenge: Anything Goes

Tuesday Throwdown #228: Embossing (sdh a. p.)

CASology #130: Friend (sdh a. p.)

I love always to see and get inspired from the DT member at the CASE This Sketch challenge but I feel I always have a difficult time to choose which element for the setch...the DT Member gave many idea but off course I can not copying her idea LOL...

This time I try to choose this Mushroom Image from The Alley Way Stamp and the Butterfly and Flower from Hero Arts. I try to make ombre effect using my strip stamp but I think I am still not proffesional also forgive me with the bad result :) (blush)

I also gave the pop corn pen on the dots at the Mushroom to give it a bit texture.

Challenge I love to join:
