Hello and happy Sunday to you! Today's card combines several challenges but is something that came to me early this morning. I did not take into account I have been on steroids for a month and my shaking makes it super hard to control water coloring. Lol
I started with Tim Holtz watercolor paper and my Kuretake watercolors. Using a paintbrush I made a circle trying to weaken the color to get a ombre effect.  I then splattered the card front with a little of the same paint. The Stamp set is a very old Stampin Up set called Its About Time stamped with Versafine black ink. I added a few black Nuvo drops to the front of the card to tie the black in. The image below is the balance of the greeting inside the card.
I am loving the sketch from My Favorite Things this week!

So the ombre is my circle and the color pallete is the chilled image.
I thought the greeting fit the Time Out challenge.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
