The pink on pink plaid had a little surprise in it for me. I drew the lines with Melon Mambo Marker on Melon Mambo cardstock. To soften the lines, I brushed over them with my AquaPainter (with water in it.) It worked beautifully--so I had the better control of the marker while I was drawing and ended up with the soft look of watercolor at the end. Best of both worlds!
