watercolor roses - 30 day coloring challenge & Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop

I'm playing along with the 30 day coloring challenge this month with Kathy Racoosin at thedailymarker.com.  The challenge is to spend some time each day coloring something - whether you just take 5 minutes to try out color combinations or take an hour to make a project - just take a little time each day to play.

I haven't joined in every day, but did try some watercoloring for the first time, using Kathy's videos for inspiration.  I'm not sure watercoloring is my thing, because I ended up with some "extra" color outside the lines on my rose image.  So, I ended up fussy cutting the roses and leaves and then adhering them to a card front, with some of the pieces adhered with foam dots for a little dimension.

 
The sentiment was cut with my Cricut Explore.  The watercolors I used were Twinkling H2O's, so the image has a subtle shimmer to it.  I'm adding this card to the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop.
