ACAD Watercolor Challenge

Hi all,

Just stopping in with two cards I made for the Card a Day watercolor challenge.  Say hi to my cards:

I created the square background on the card by watercoloring with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and a square Sizzix Framlit die.  I stamped my image in the center of square with the same ink and spritzed it with a little water so the image would soften and feather to give it that "fading memory" look.

To add a little interest to the simply white background, I splattered a little of the same ink off of a very wet paint brush.

Once everything was dry, I stamped my sentiment, attached some twine, and added a little bling.

For this card I heat embossed my jar and ornament stamps onto a piece of white cardstock and watercolored the images.  Once the image was completely dry, (I was to impatient to wait, so I used my heat gun to help speed things along) I cut out the jar and attached it to my card base.

Well, that's all for me and the watercolor challenge.  I hope that you have time to play along!
