Friday Mashup #2-Sketch and Colour

Friday is here!  That means a brand new challenge for the Friday Mashup!!  The Friday Mashup has a great challenge for you this week!  There is a cool, versatile sketch from Kathy and some awesome colours from Holly. 
Remember, with the Friday Mashup challenge, we encourage you to play with one or both of the challenges listed each week! 

This week you could:
  1. Use the colours-Marina Mist, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake
  2. Use the sketch
  3. Or use both the colours and the sketch together, like I did and Mash it up!
Here is my card!  Can you see the technique I tried?  I decided to try watercolouring for the first time!  I actually purchased the Watercolour Paper from the SU! catalogue and I love it!  I couldn't believe the difference using that paper.  I also used my markers and an Aqua Painter.  The ladies in my Card Club will be learning how to watercolour with me in May!  I am so excited!

I hope you get the chance to head on over to the Friday Mashup and join us for our fun challenge this week!  I am looking forward to seeing what you create!!!
