Soft water colours

Hello there,

I have been making card for quite a few years, but never really have a particular style and I am still searching for it.  I usually try different things that's pleasing to my eyes.  For sure water colours is one of them.  Today I made a card for a few challenges.

First my card:

Here are the challenges:

The very first one is a new challenge started by a very talented stamper from Ontario, Canada - Virginia Lu, visit her wonderful blog: Yes, Virginia.  And her new challenge is called Virginia's View Challenge #1.  The first one is to use water-colour.  Here's the inspiration photo:

The second is for CAS(E) this Sketch #66:

The third one is for The Card Concept #4 - use a floral theme, and I think my card could be consider Clean and Layered.

Edited on March 10 to add:  Also entering the current Hero Arts Birthday Challenge, in the Floral Birthday cards category.

Supplies for my card are:

Hero Arts - Delicate Blossoms (CL449)
Hero Arts - Say it All (CL574)
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Scalloped Rectangles Large (S4-133)
Ranger Distress Ink (Spun Sugar, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey)

Thanks for stopping by.   Have a lovely day!

I feel the same way you do Cindy- some people have such a recognizable style and I don't even know what mine is:). I really love the soft water coloring! We were on the same wavelength for the CAS(E) this sketch challenge:)
