WSCC2 - Hang in There!

This time the color challenge used three colors: Handsome Hunter, Taken with Teal and Green Galore...now as I type this, I realize I used Wild Wasabi. How's that for a silly hostess I am???? UGH!!

Anyway, I had someone in mind when I made this card, and since I just recently remembered I had this set, I was happy to dig it out and try out the watercoloring technique using my Stampin' Write markers and an aquapainter. How fun is that!! I never did that kind of watercoloring before, and it was just as fun as watercolor pencils.

Sets: Hang in There, Houndstooth BG

Colors: Handsome Hunter, Taken With Teal, Wild Wasabi

Other: Gold eyelets, aquapainter
