Watercolour Birthday

Morning.
Here is a simple card I made using my watercolour crayons again.

I took out one of my favourite stamps from Penny Black called Hillflowers.  That stamp is super for colouring on or just using as a silhouette. 
For this card, I using my watercolour crayons.  Using a wide paint brush, I wet the stamp with water then coloured directly onto my stamp with various shades of blue and greens for the stems.  I gave a small spray of water over all and stamped onto my watercolour paper.  
I scribbled some crayon onto my non-stick craft sheet, sprayed with water and used that to add the paint splatters.  When that was all dry, I sponged the edges with Salty Ocean Distress ink.
The sentiment is so fun.  It is from the Sprinkles and Smiles set.  


I am adding my card to these challenges:

Little Red Wagon- DISTRESS IT

Simon Says- LET'S GET SENTIMENTAL

Come and Get It- GOT FLOWERS

CAS on Sunday- CHEER UP BUTTERCUP
