Distress Watercolouring

 
Hello.  Another day with no Blue!!  Can you believe it? 
Well, honestly I am just using up an extra piece of watercolour paper that I had used to soak up all the excess green Distress ink leftover when making my last card.  I just kept adding more and more ink sprayed with water to the paper.  When I saw how lovely all the colours looked blended together, I decided to use the piece to make a card. 
I stamped the flowers from Magenta onto white cs with Memento ink then added a thin black strip to separate the panels.  Wasn't sure where to add my sentiment so decided to cut it out and add it with pop dots near the top.  I love the fresh feel of the greens.
 
Also adding my card to these challenges:
 
Less is More- ANYTHING GOES
 
Sister Act- ANYTHING GOES
 
 
 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
 
Supplies:  stamps- Technique Tuesday, Magenta/ Distress ink/ Mini Mister/ acrylic block/ pop dots
