Watercoloring

Today is/was National Coloring book  Day.  I grabbed my zig markers as well as a page from the Painterly Days  Flower Watercoloring book and took them along to my crafty Tuesday group.  This was my first time trying a coloring book.  Most I have seen have such small images it is tough on my aging eyes.  This book, though has larger images.

 Here is the 1/4 page I water colored.





Here is the card that resulted from my favorite portion of that quarter page.  I added Sending and Hugs from Simon Says Stamp's Sending die, and Sending and Wishing stamp set.  I stacked the black die onto two cream colored dies offset in both directions to make sure that die stood out against the painted background.




I am submitting this card to two challenges - Anything goes at the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group. It's their 50th challenge.   The second challenge is Casology Week 209- Watercolor.  I am not sure there is quite enough "white" space, but this is a simple card.

   





Thanks so much for stopping by!
