Watercolor/Color Combo card

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone had a great week. I'm popping in to share a card. You know when you go to a local craft store and they have a huge sale going on? Let's just say I picked up the image on this card for a STEAL! I'll be entering the card in several challenges. First up is the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge site that challenged us to use watercolors. Second, is the Just Add Ink site. I loved the colors they chose. And last, but not least, is Word Art Wednesday that always allows us to just create freely with an "anything goes" challenge. Here's my card and the color swatch also:

I just LOVE this image! It's from Great Impressions Stickables and it's just so sweet! I really wanted to do some soft pinks and purples with the soft blue sky in the background. I used my distress markers to color in the image and also some of my Inktense watercolor pencils. Although the background paper has some additional colors from that of the color challenge, I didn't feel they were too blatant to distract from the main image that did have the main colors. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Sure to brighten up someone's day! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
