Water Colour Challenge at 613 Avenue Create

 Time for another great challenge over at 613 Avenue Create, as always it is an Anything Goes Challenge and the optional twist is Watercolor. 

The stamp I used for this card has been in my collection for many years.  The stamp is called Floral Collage and it is a stamp from the Tapestry Studio collection from Stamps Happen Inc. 

To watercolur the image I used Caran d'Ache Neocolor 11. I have not had my watercolor crayons out for a long time and I realized that I need to get back to doing more watercolor.

Thank you for stopping by and have a Creative week.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by our talented design team.

I am entering this card in the following Challenges - 

A Perfect Time to Craft - Always Anything Goes
A Bit more time to Craft - Always anything goes
