Lawnscaping watercolor challenge

Hello again!:)
Here to share a card I made for the watercolors challenge at the Lawnscaping challenge blog.

I've been loving playing with water coloring lately! However I'm not so good with coloring images in with water coloring , I try but just get frustrated with they way it looks, I much prefer laying down strokes of color. So that's what I did with this card.

I used the Our Friendship Grows stamp set on water color paper and also stamped some images in the background with Dusty Concord Distress Ink, and spritzed with water before stamping to give a watercolor look in the background as well.
I used the Scripty Sayings set for the sentiment and added some pretty sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I'm quite happy with the way the colors came out & have so much fun water coloring!:)
Hope you all have a lovely rest of your week!!
Thanks for stopping by!:)
