Make It Monday #240 Watercolor Resist

Hi everyone, I hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday.  So far it's sunny and near 50 here in MI.  We are suppose to get some rain this evening after getting almost a foot of snow this past Wednesday. 

If you haven't had a chance to watch Lexi's Make It Monday Water Color Resist, do so.  I really enjoyed playing with this technique yesterday.  I have two cards to show you.  The first card is my first attempt at the water color technique.

Red card stock
White card stock
Water color card stock
Yellow, Red and Blue water colors
Rubber Cement
PTI Shaker Shapes: Balloon Dies
Yellow Floss
Stormy Sky, Broken China & Tumbled Glass

Since I had fun with these colors, I thought I would see what the colors for Color Throwdown are for this week.  Pink, green and kraft.  Ooh, I wonder how they would look together....

IRL how this card turned out and am entering it into the MIM #240, Color Throwdown #381 and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

Water color paper
Green Water Color
Brown Water Color
PTI Hibiscus Burst ink
PTI Rustic Wreath Die
PTI Beautiful Blooms II #3 dies
PTI Swoosh Stamp Set
SU Polka Dots EF
SU Crumb Cake ink

Here is what is left of my water color resist pieces.  I should have taken a picture of them before I die cut them up.  I did get one of the green and pink as I couldn't decide how to put my card together.

Thanks for stopping by.  I would love to know what you think of this technique by leaving a comment below.
