I used the Kraftin Kimmie Wicked Black Ink with Mission Gold watercolors.  At the Kraftin Kimie Retreat I took a Watercolor class from Krafty girl Jessie and had a great time and it inspired me to use watercolors!  I mated the watercolor panel and finished it off with sequins.  I just love this set!  What about YOU?
