Yes, more watercoloring. It's so much fun. I can't help myself! And yes, I snuck black in this one, too, even though I tried to hold back. I just love the contrast against the black. What can I say?
I had actually intended this card to be yellow and orange. I was in a down mood from some real life issues and needed some cheering up and was using some orange and yellow gingham as a jumping-off point. Then I turned left and went for the zigzag instead. Despite the black and dark colors, I did find this card to be quite cheerful. How can it not be with that cute little whale? Now, if I could just learn to photograph well! Urgh! (Fixed it - just need to photograph in the early part of the day, NOT at night!)
I love the Silly Sealife set. It's just so precious! I need to pull out the Fishy Friends stamps so they can all make friends with each other, eh?

This is adorable! Great color choices and the black just makes everything stand out so nicely! I love the white highlight between this guy's brow. I've always loved your work and your bold colors! I need a Cuttlebug!

Your watercoloring is BEAUTIFUL! Lovely card....and sorry to hear you were going thru a down time. I'm there with you as I've been going thru a rough time myself and making cards or any paper project sure does help distract. Blessings.
