Watercolor Birthday - Your Next Stamp Challenge

Happy Friday!
I am finally back after a bought of strep and other health issues that kept me from being able to do my crafty thing!  Your Next Stamp recently had a release with so many fabulous stamp sets and dies that you don't want to miss but I was unable to participate in that release due to my illness.  However, I will be sharing with you on Monday what I have created now, so I hope you will be back to check them out then!

In the meantime, I am sharing with you a card I made for the current YNS sketch and color challenge.  I have used both the sketch and the colors to create this watercolor image using the new Sweet Hummingbird Set.  Isn't it just beautiful?!

So while this set is beautful, my watercoloring has a little work I think! hahaha... I love to watercolor, but it is still a learning curve for me, but I thought with this great open lined stamp, it was perfect to test that watercoloring out on.  Using some watercolor paper by Canson, I stamped the image and used my Zig watercolor pens to create the look on the image.  Keeping that the focus, I used the color scheme on the panels from the sketch.  I finished the card with some gumdrops and stamped the sentiment directly onto the image panel.

We hope you will be able to play along in the challenge and link your creation to the challenge blog for your chance to win! And be sure to stop by Monday to see my new release creations! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great weekend!
