Let's Watercolor

One of my favorite challenge groups is the Challenge Your Stash group on SCS, under the capable and organized leadership of my friend Barb. The idea is we can't shop for anything when making our monthly challenge card (which we post on the 28th of each month). 

We take turns choosing the theme. This month it was Vickie's turn. In celebration of International Watercolor Month (who knew???), Vickie challenged us to create a card or project using a little or a lot of watercoloring.

I may have cheated.

Do Karin Markers count as watercolor? I mixed them with water and use a paint brush to color the flower on my card... so I'm hoping that is considered watercolor.... BUT, just in case, I used an actual watercolor paint to do the blue wash around the flower.

I hope Vickie, Barb, and the other Challenge Your Stash gals like my card.
