Your Friendship Means Everything

This was my first water coloring attempt...starting with a 12x12 White Daisy Sheet of Watercolor paper, I brushed on several soft colors from the coloring pallet and then blended them with water and set aside to dry.  When it was dry, I lightly sprayed with Pearl Mist and set aside to dry.  Now I had a background sheet that I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with it.  

This card was made for Heart2Heart Challenge, dated Monday, November 23, 2015 "Give Thanks" I referred to several You Tube Tutorials on water coloring and chose to use my new water color set from CTMH even though there were several ink and water coloring products you could use and different techniques.  

I did two different focal stamped images, the first was from CTMH Stamp Set "Candlelight Garden"...stamped the jar, masked the jar to stamp the flowers and then heat embossed in silver.  And the second attempt at watercoloring I used CTMH Stamp Set "Balloon Wishes Occasions", stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white.

I chose my first water coloring image for this challenge.  On the image I used a Gold Mist on the background masking the jar and flowers, adhered white cardstock panel to back, glued foam to the back, cut another piece of my watercolored background paper and adhered jar/flowers to background.
Stamped Sentiments directly on card.

I had a rough time with watercolors...not sure I will do water colors again; but may try another ink choice for watercoloring...I definitely need practice.
