Watercoloring Take 1

I love these colors together and they sort of happened by accident. I have REALLY been trying to use up my scraps. These colors were all laying in a scrap pile together and I thought..okay, lets go with that. Pacific Point is still my least favorite of all the In Colors but when you pair it right it's quite stunning. I made this card for Sketches {by tamara}. She is getting ready to announce a new design team and I would love to be on it. I love sketch challenges and what a better excuse (to give my hubby) then it's design team work dear!!! No he's really great about letting me sneak to my craft room without an excuse!! Love ya, babe!!

I combined this sketch with Stamp Something's newest challenge to make anything birthday. I was going to post the treat pouches I made for my son's birthday but I've been really pressed for time so they came out pretty generic. I decided to go with a card instead.

This was my first attempt at watercoloring and I think I did pretty good. I've been wanting to try it for awhile but everytime I placed and SU order I forgot to get watercolor paper. I could have bought some another place but do you think I would remember that either??? I blame it all on mommy brain!!!
