Lawnscaping Challenge #105

Lawnscaping Challenge #105 is Watercolors!

I love watercolors, and I need to get waaay better at it! :) I have been using an inexpensive watercolor set, but felt I needed to step it up a bit. It was fine for basics, but I couldn't get consistent colors and when I mixed colors I wasn't happy with the results.    Last month I  bought a Sakura Koi watercolor set, and it has such beautiful, vibrant colors.   I didn't want to spend too much money and this set seemed to fit the bill right now.  This is the card I made.

I watercolored the tree and leaves freehand and used Lawn Fawn's Home Sweet Home stamp set for the rest of the images. I did watercolor and cut out the nest and eggs so I could mount it on some glue dots for a little dimension  I masked the images with rubber cement and then watercolored the sky.  Recently one of my daughter's friends announced a pregnancy and I am going to send her this card.

Thanks for visiting.
