Watercolor ATCs

I must have been in a creative mood this weekend. It's been pretty hectic lately with more medical problems than I care to revisit. So, with a quiet weekend at hand, I sat at my table and created and created. Here are some ATCs I did with watercolors.

These first two are images I saw in a children's book. Love the vibrancy of color in kids books.

These two are out of my imagination. The flowers are watercolors, but the butterfly is stamped and then colored in. The woman I did for a challenge I saw on a site. The challenge was to do a watercolor woman (head only) in 10 mins. or less. This took 9 mins.

Daisies and Butterflies

I loved doing this card. I did this following a sketch posted by Kerry on "The Stamp Shack". The easy part was the water coloring, cutting out the circles and the butterflies. The hard part was figuring out what background to put them on. Seemed like anything I used was too overpowering or not enough. Finally settled on making my own background paper using ranger inks. Hats off to those ladies that can put a gorgeous card mixing and matching papers.
