Faux Watercolour (first attempt)



Happy Saturday.  Here is Canada we have a long weekend...gotta love that with more time to play.  
I have been taking the Online Card Watercolor classes but haven't had time to play along.  
Here is my first attempt card I made after watching the Day 5 videos where you use a stamped image and watercolour it.  I am not going to share a lot of details as I feel it wouldn't be fair to all the contributors or to all the others that are participating in the classes.  All I can say is that I can't get enough!!  If you are thinking about signing up, do it.
My card was inspired when I saw the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast this am.  We are to be inspired from the Grandin Road site and this is the rug I saw and loved!
I am adding my card to these challenges:



Shopping Our Stash- SING IT TO ME
(song: Round and Round the Garden)
I work with little people and sing this many times a day!


Virginia's View- STITCHING or SEWING


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.  Hope you have a great weekend.

Supplies:  stamps- Rubbernecker, Mama Elephant/ Distress inks/ paint brush/ sewing machine/ bl Memento
