Garden View

Here is the card I made for the challenge at Splitcoast today.  This card came together pretty easily.  
The card base was made by applying Gesso over a piece of drywall tape.  When dry, I rubbed Distress ink in Salty Ocean over the top, keeping the ink to one side of the cardstock.  
The main panel was made by wetting the paper then applying some watercolours.  When dry, I coloured my stamp from Unity with Memento markers, generously sprayed them with water and stamped.  Finally, I spritzed some ink onto the bottom corner for interest.  

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.  Thanks so very much for dropping by.

Supplies:  stamp- Unity/ Memento markers/ watercolour paints/ Gesso/ drywall tape/ Distress ink/ twine
