Try It Out Tuesday # 20~ Water, Water Everywhere

Our challenge for today is Water, Water Everywhere!! Watercolor Only--must color image with any sort of watercoloring (ie, w/ Shimmerz, Twinkling H2O's, SU markers/reinkers, distress inkers, etc.)
I must admit I almost asked if I could take this week off as watercolor is not my best coloring medium but then I remembered, this is a challenge and it's called that for a reason, to challenge you! So I challenged myself to take the challenge! LOL!
Remember to check out Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see how you can play along and also to check out the other wonderful creations by the other design team members.
Here's my creation~ I did "cheat" and did the skin tones with regular prismacolor pencils but the hair, skirt and doggie are watercolored.

Supplies:
card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
stamps: Ally,
paper: some from my scraps,
ink: VersaFine Onyx Black,
others: prismacolor watercolor pencils, lavender copic glitter pen, script cuttlebug embossing folder, matte lilac bella baubles, Dress It Up Color Me Love button, CM fine tip pen,

Very pretty watercolour. You didn't even have to fess up that you used pencil crayons on the skin. Very pretty and spring like card.

Danni, I think you have done a great job with the watercolour. I use tombows for watercolouring and like you it took some time to learn the art!!! Have a great day!
