Watercolor Doodling


One Layer Wednesday has this fun challenge this week wanting some doodling on the card. 6 days ago I wanted to make a card for that challenge and then I got sidetracked and completely forgot about it. So I checked today when Linky is closing and it is in 2 HOURS and 29 minutes!!! But I generally work well under pressure and here is what I came up with: 




I inked up an acrylic block with distress inks, sprayed it with water and stamped it on watercolor paper. The flower is Hero Arts Watercolor Petals (Cl 431), the sentiment is Papertrey -Happy Trails. I doodled around the flowers with a black fine tipped pen and made the "frame". I purposefully made the lines shaky to make it as doodley as possible. 
This is very different from what I normally make - I guess that is part of the challenges, to go beyond what feels comfortable some times. I like the result. - 1 hour and 57 minutes left - I could make another card in that time, but I guess I'll take it easy and relax........
