Little Red Wagon Challenge #335 | For the Love of Water

Have you seen my sidebar? I'm so excited to announce that I'm the newest Girlfriend on the block over at Little Red Wagon! Mandy, my sweet and incredibly talented friend - in blogland and in life - recommended me and I was asked to join the team. I'm so delighted to be part of a team again and look forward to creating and sharing with a new group of friends.

This week at
Little Red Wagon, Mandy is the Girlfriend in charge and she's challenged us with watercolouring: "For the love of water"! It's Mandy that took time to sit with me and give me a personal lesson in watercolour techniques (and got me hooked on distress inks and Zig markers!) so it seems most fitting that this should be my first challenge with her.

For my card, I did the "smoosh" technique for my background, using a few different distress colours before letting my card dry and cutting it with a My Favorite Things stitched scallop die. I then added a little guy from Mama Elephant's Sunday Stroll set, which I cut and coloured, and finished things off with a retired sentiment from My Craft Spot.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see Mandy's projects and look through the link list for inspiration from the rest of the Girlfriends and other participants.
