Watercolor Card

I came across an awsome card made by Julie Buhler a few months ago and have been playing with replicating her technique. I don't think I have it down completely yet, but it is oh so fun to do. Here is her great card along with the instructions. Here is my humble attempt...I used a retired set called And Everything Nice stamped in Stazon Black and colored with Stampin' Write Markers. I created the clouds in the sky by sponging Soft Sky ink over a scalloped punch. I did light shading on the sky with Blue Bayou. The card base is Blue Bayou and I used a non-SU! corner punch to hold the main image in place. I am going to have to keep practicing this technique until I am able to get a card as nice as Julie's...Thanks for looking!!

I think you did an awesome job on the clouds! This might be my favorite of your cards that I've seen!
