Watercolor Wash

It was just plain fun to try my hand at doing some water coloring.  I don't do much of it but it does stretch me when it is offered up as a challenge.  The Friday Mashup Challenge this week was to create a project with a watercolor wash, create a CAS or one with minimal layers or mash it up and use both.  As always, I tried both.

The watercolor wash background was done on watercolor paper.  I used Dimensionals to pop up the background.  Sometimes I have a hard time getting the water color paper to stay stuck, especially after it's been wet.  Of course, I had to use my all time favorite stamp set, Lovely As a Tree!

Stamp Sets:  Lovely As a Tree, Kinda Eclectic, Trust God; Inks:  Crushed Curry, Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Jet Black Archival Ink (Ranger); Card Stock:  Lost Lagoon, Watercolor Paper; Accessories & Tools:  Rhinestone Basic Jewels
All Stampin' Up!® product, unless otherwise noted.

The Friday Mashup Challenge can be found HERE.
