Same Image 2 Ways - Bugaboo

Hello, have you heard there is a NEW challenge
in Blogland.  
Yippie, it is called 
be a month long challenge starting on the 15th of every month.
How cool is that to have all these Bugaboo creations in one place
to look at each month.  I am so honored to be on the Design Team.

So for my project this week I am made two cards with the same image
colored each a bit different way, using the same media and colors.
The image I used is Floral Trio Frame and printed on Canson Mixed Media paper.

The first one I with a watercolor smooching kind of look.
Using my Distress Inks - Peacock Feather - Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick
I smooched each color on my craft sheets and sprayed lightly with water, then I laid my printed imaged directly on the sprayed ink and moved it around a bit.
After it dried I mounted it onto a piece of black card stock.
I took a piece of Recollections Pink pearl card stock and loaded it
into my Explore and using a Pilot Precision V5 black pen it wrote
the sentiment.  I love the elegant look of this writing.
I embossed some lines along the edge using my MS Score Board, then mounted the panel with the Bugaboo image and that was it.

This one is pretty similar in layout it is just a 4 by 8 card that fits into
a business size #10 envelope.  Here I used the same Distress Inks colors as above but I colored using an Aqua brush.  I was more precise and painted within the
lines, then added a light watercolor wash to the background.
I cut out the Happy Birthday Wishes using a die I got in my April Stamp of Approval box, it is by Cas-ual Fridays.  

So there is my two version of the same digital image, which one do
you like better?  I'd love to hear.
Well head on over to Bugaboo and pick out some images and join
in the fun on this new monthly challenge.  Also check out the Friday Freebie

Very cute Donna. Glad to know I'm not the only one who couldn't make up her mind. Heehee. I really like adding score lines like that for interest, never thought to do that. Love both cards, but I'm drawn to the second one. Guess I'm just a 'color in the lines girl', although I do plan on trying to push myself and try new things.
