Little Red Wagon Challenge #335 ~ For the Love of Water

Good morning.  I believe someone is taking the week and making it shorter all the time.  Wednesday seems to roll around much more quickly than anticipated ALL THE TIME.  And, I run out of time to get in all the crafting I would like.  Sigh!!!  Guess that's how it goes with a day job and a home to take care of.  :)

As previously mentioned because it is Wednesday we start a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  First off, I would like to take a moment to welcome our new girlfriend Kate.  Take a minute to visit her blog and make her feel welcome.  Our hostess for this week's challenge is Mandy and her theme is FOR THE LOVE OF WATER ~ using watercolours or watercolour techniques.  This was new to me so I went to my usual place when I want to look something up ~ Pinterest ~ and found there a number of watercolour techniques to use on cards.  I combined techniques from a few and came up with this.

Stamp is from Stampin' Up Botanicals for You set embossed on watercolour paper with clear embossing powder and heat embossed.  Then I used my aqua brush and Tim Holtz distress mini inks to add the colour.  Card stock is Recollections, patterned paper is Simple Stories Carpe Diem, flowers and sequins are from my never ending stash.

A close up of the watercolouring:

Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out what the other girlfriends have made and link up a watercolour project of your own.

I actually really enjoyed this technique and trying something new and there may be another similar card to share in the near future so stay tuned.  Have a great day!!!
