Stampin B's Challenge # 11 -- Watercoloring

Do not look at the coloring of this image too closely!! Please!!!! Nicole (ButterflyEars) was our hostess for the Stamping B's Challenge this week, and she decided we should watercolor!! Well, I have the watercolor crayons....have had them for years.....AND have never used them. I could not put my hands on my Aquapen (or whatever you call that plastic-water holding-pen like brush), so I had to use a cheapie small paint brush I found. (Can you tell just how uncomfortable I was with this challenge.....lol???!!!!) Thanks to Nicole for making me work way out of my comfort zone. It is always good to be challenged!!!

Once I got over the watercoloring, I had fun with this card. I had fun making the various flowers with some SU punches. I used Nesties/Spellbinder dies to cut the circles and the tag. The paper comes from a DCWV Safari paper packet, while the ribbon I got a while back from Really Reasonable Ribbons. The image and sentiment come from There She Goes Clear Stamps and are from the Tweeterpated set.

Now please be sure to visit the Stampin B's blog to check out the creations of the rest of the team. You will also find information on how you can participate right along with us each week. We hope you will have time to play!!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!!
