I made this card originally for the Lawnscaping Challenge #85 which is a color challenge this week and then I realized it would also fit Virginia's View Challenge #5 Die Cuts and the Moxie Fab World Wonderful Words Challenge. So, I'm entering this one into three challenges.
To make this card I made my own watercolor paper like Virginia suggested a few days ago. I wasn't sure if I would use this for the background paper or in another way. As you can see I decided on another way, to use it for my tag. Here's what my paper looked like after I colored it with my Stampin' Up watercolor pencils in the Lawnscaping Challenge colors. Then brushed over the paper with a watercolor brush. I recently bought a new, relatively expensive watercolor brush because I found the cheap ones I had constantly dropped bristles and I had to keep picking them out of my projects. Luckily I got a little discount at Michaels. But, I really love my new brush and it didn't loose any bristles, yay!!
Here is the Lawnscaping Inspriation Photo - I love these colors!

Here's my card.
After I finished my watercolor paper I die cut the tag which is the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 Die. I lined the edges of the tag with my black Stampers Big Brush pen. The Thanks die cut is the Scripty Thanks from Lawn Fawn. The curved line is from a Lawn Fawn stamp set called Happy Summer. The cord on the tag is from Lawn Trimmings Retro. The black paper is from PTI, the white paper is Neenah, the blue paper is from Stampin' Up, and the Tag background was made on paper from my mixed media art journal. Thanks for stopping by!
