Lawnscaping Challenge Time!!

Hi crafty friends!!

Today's project is a really fun, yet simple one!
The background was a little time consuming, but otherwise really fun and one layer....
a challenge for me in itself! lol
This one was inspired thanks to the ladies over at the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog!

This weeks new challenge is this.......

Watercolors!!!!   Yay!!!  One of my most favorite mediums to work with!   So, of course I will definately play along!!  This project hit me as soon as i saw the theme...I knew exactly what background I was going to create and exactly what stamp I was going to use!  That hardly ever happens that easily for me!  In the process, I took two different just water coloring with a brush using distress inks and the other was smushing color onto my craft sheet, spritzing it with water, and then making direct contact to my paper.   Here are the results!!!!!.....

I honestly have to say at first, the one on the left was my favorite once it was dry....however, once I actually started stamping the sentiment and stars, the one on the right became my most favorite! I love them both really!

Here are a few close ups of each of the cards so you can see closer detail of the water coloring....

 Well, that's all for me today!

If you wana play along with this challenge, you still have lots of time!
