Double D - Watercolor

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D the challenge is Watercolor. One of my all time favorite mediums. Just look at this GORGEOUS Mood Board provided for our inspiration. OH MY mouth is just watering from all this beautiful color.........

And here is my card:
I can't tell you how much I envy those who can do their magic with water color. I need to practice more. Here I have cut out a card base with the PTI Noted: A2 Scalloped Die, and then colored the flowers from the Honey Bee Spring Blossoms set with Mission Gold watercolors and  die cut them out.  For the background I did a simple smooshing technique with Distress Inks. I was paying homage to the photo on the lower left in the Mood Board.

Here are the Ingredients:
*GKD White Card Stock
*PTI Scalloped A2 Die
*Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink
*Honey Bee Spring Blossoms Stamp
and Companion Dies
*Card Making Magic All Around Greetings for Greeting
*SU Stitched Circles

 I would invite you to head on over to the Double D Challenge and check out what the other designers have done with this Mood Board. And if you play along, you could win this awesome paper pack. If you love water color you will LOVE these papers!!!!
