Polar Party, Aqua Painters and a Challenge!

I have just got some Stampin' Up Aqua Painters, these are fantastic. They are so easy to use, just unscrew the top, fill up with water and away you go!

Stamp your image in Stazon or a waterproof ink such as Stampin Up Basic Black or Grey. There are different ways you can use your aqua brushes, e.g. with re-inkers, water colour crayons/pencils etc. I used mine with Stampin' Up ink pads, just squeeze the ink pad before you open it, this deposits some ink on the lid. Dip your aqua painter in the ink and start painting. I used water colour paper, you can use whisper white but you do need to be careful not to have your aqua painter too wet or the card will buckle, so have some kitchen roll ready. 
I thought I wonder enter the Simply Stampin' Challenge as I haven't entered for ages. This weeks challenge is the Sketch below:
I used the Polar Party stamp set, (get those Christmas Cards started!) which of course I coloured in using my aqua painters. The colour way is baja breeze and riding hood red, I also used daffodil delight and lucky limeade ink pads to colour in.
