Moon Lake Watercolor Card

"The question is not what you look at, but what you see." ~Thoreau

Hello! I hope you're having a lovely day. Mine has been nice and quiet, just the way I like it. The hubby and I did a few errands this afternoon and when we came home he wanted to watch something on the television, so I played in my craft room.

This Moon Lake Watercolor Card was inspired by the color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary to use: Tip Top Taupe, Lost Lagoon and Perfect Plum. It seemed like a good day to do a little watercoloring and I really wanted to make a purple sky, I don't know why. The watercolored panel was adhered to Perfect Plum cardstock. I decided to use striped patterned paper from the Cherry on Top paper stack to play along at A Gem of A Challenge (Spots and/or Stripes). To add some texture and interest I used Tip Top Taupe lace along with some Lost Lagoon thick twine. That's it!

Thanks for stopping by!
