Watercolor Fun!!

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!!!

Water-coloring is very trendy nowadays!! Its super easy and super fun to do.
There is no strict rules to follow or lots of blending to do or special/expensive supplies need for water coloring.
Actually you can use any watercolor...like cheap kiddie ones, simple water color pencils, Gelatos, Aquarelle pencils, Inktense pencils, distress markers, distress paints...pretty much anything water soluble and colorful.
Okay!! I'm not a PRO but I like trying new trends.

Now here are the results of my fun watercoloring evening...


I used THIS Art Impression stamp set for this card....simply colored it with water and Inktense pencils.

This card is for the following challenges...
Cards For Men: Animals.
Pause, Dream, Enjoy: Outdoor critters.

Next... 
I used Inktense pencils again..
I used the SAME Ai stamp set for this card.
Easy peasy coloring...just added a anchor charm with May Arts Jute twine.

This card is for the following challenges...

 Retro sketches: Sketch #61.
Cupcake Craft : Water/sea.
Amusing Challenges: Anything goes.

...now for the last card I used  Faber-Castell- Aquarelle pencils.
This card is done a bit differently...usually I stamp and then color but here I colored the spots where I want to stamp first and them stamped with coordinating inks.
Just wanted to try out some new ways ;)
The stamp set is from Wplus9.

This card is for the following challenges...
Design Memory Craft: Inspired by gardens.
Critter Sketch:Flowers.
Get Inky!: Floral fun.

All the 3 watercolored cards are for MOXIE FAB WORLD-Wonder of WATERCOLOR challenge too!!!

Did I mention that my Camera broke... Super sad!!!
The lens won't move, I love it , its simple one and I've been using it for 4 years now.
Now I've to take pics with my iphone..until I get it fixed.
iphone is good but not the best for card pics.
What do you think the pics are OKAY?????

Check out the fun post on Coloring...Coloring Outside the Lines!!!

Thanks for stopping!!!
