Watercolor with Clear Blocks

Hello Stampers!

I spent yesterday with my sister at the doctor's.  When I got home I had to cut the grass.  I did not have a card to post for today so I quickly created one so you would have something to look at.

I started with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.    

 
 
I thought this would be a quick sketch to work with.  I had looked at my challenge blogs and saw the color challenge at Nacho Average Challenges.
 
      
I really liked this color combo and decided to use it.  
 
I was checking out Pinterest the other day and saw a card I loved.  I wanted to know how she created the background so I went to her blog.  She actually used a technique that Stampin' Up made a video on.  I looked at the video and decided to give it a try for my card.  Here is what I created.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I hope you enjoyed my card today.  I had fun with this technique and will be using it again.  Have a Super Saturday!

I like how you colored the image with markers for the inside of your card, it makes a fun contrast to the watercolor background on your card front. Thanks for joining the fun with the Nachos this week!
