This card is for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge FTTC20:http://www.flourishesnewsletter.blogspot.com/ We were to choose an inspiration piece from artist, Kim Poloson: http://www.allposters.com/gallery.as...1=1&ItemType=1
LeRose A Monte I is my piece and I flipped it because my image was taller than wider. Had a hard time with this one and changed paper several times, glued and unglued and changed out the top piece several times. I have so many supplies out, my craft room looks like it could explode. If I had not loved this image so much and spent time watercoloring it, I would have thrown the whole thing away. Just venting a bit.......
Two Days Later:
I also want to enter this card into the Stampin' B
challenge #11 this week that is to use a watercolor technique. Hope it is o.k. since I posted this card a couple days ago. Really short on time this week.
I thought this card fit perfectly for their challenge since I watercolored this image with a brush using my colors from Tombow Markers. You should really participate in this wonderful challenge. Lots of fun.

Oh, Brenda, I "feel your pain"!!! I go through all that so many times. Usually, by the end, it turns out better than I thought it would and I think that's what happened to yours because I certainly think it is GORGEOUS!!! Your coloring turned out fantastic and it's beautiful!!! Love that top border and your pretty b/fly. You should see my room after every card I make even if I'm attempting a CAS!!! It's ridiculous!!! Great job Brenda!!!
