Challenge #36 - Watercolors

Hi crafty friends! Amber here with Challenge #36.
Today I would like to challenge you to use watercolors!

Watercolors are so popular right now. And they come in so many forms - you really have no excuse for not joining us! Whether you use watercolor in pan, tube, liquid, pencil, or mist form I really would love to see what you create! If you don't own any then just go out and grab a 99 cent watercolor set from the school supply section. There, problem solved :)

Here's what I created:

I brushed some watercolor (from a tube) onto my stamp before stamping the tag on this card.

I spread yellow, blue, and tan watercolors on this layout:

And I used watercolor pencils on this card:

Erica colored this bold flower on her beautiful card:
Charity used Roseart watercolors to paint the peacock feathers on this Graphic 45 paper:

Kristy watercolored the yellow, red,and blue striped paper on the left of her layout:
Kyla used watercolor to mimic the sunset of the photo in her shadowbox: 
And our fantabulous July guest designer Misty Buck painted this gorgeous background on her layout:
