This is my first time for playing with the talented gals at the AAA Cards challenge blog. The challenge this week goes like this:
"Use any watercoloring media you enjoy most. Have fun with wild colorful watercolor Embossings, or Fine Art paintings, Color washes and splashes. Your watercoloring can be the background or the detail, an embellishment or die cut- we're very open to design and technique. We ask that your submission be in the CAS style. And this week please tell us about your paints of choice."
Back in April I played along with Nichole Heady, of Papertrey Ink's, Make It Monday technique she called "Watercolor Splats" You can see Nichole's video HERE. I really loved the look this technique produced. Here is the card I made in April of this year:

I tried it again on the card I made yesterday - this time in shades of Pink - water based dye ink by Stampin Up.
I have to admit it I am one-layer-card challenged! I had all I could do to restrain myself from putting some layers or buttons and bows on my card LOL I am still not convinced it wouldn't look better with something but I was going for simplicity! and hoping my watercolor splats were nifty enough to stand on their own.
I did give into spraying some Pink Passion ink on to the card after it was all put together (I know right? bold move or...dumb). I used a toothbrush to spray the tiny splatters and I like it - my finger is still hot pink but the card is nice heeheehee.
Darnell will be glad to hear that the images I used for my card is from my NBUS : ) It is from a $1.00 Clear Stamp by Studio G.
Today's card is the 92nd card I've created in my goal to create 100 cards in 100 days! It is also a THANK YOU!! card for you, my commenters and followers and blogland friends. I really appreciate the fun loving support you have shown me on my self inflicted LOL exercise. If you want a chance to win my BLOG CANDY simply leave a comment on today's post.
