ASIAN ARTISTRY .... Cameo Coral and Ruby Red rose, watercoloured

Last week at stamp group (a monthly get-together with stamping friends, mainly to eat chocolate and talk a lot!), I watercoloured a few images from the new Asian Artistry stamp set.  Despite remembering to take chocolate, I didn't remember to actually take any inkpads along, so I scribbled with markers on the plastic stamp case, and watercoloured using my aquapainter.  I'd used the colours Cameo Coral, Ruby Red and Old Olive, so that was the starting point for this card.

I started off making a very simple card for a challenge on my Stampin' Up! team's online forum, but it evolved into something completely different.  I've been known to sponge cards to within an inch of their life ..  couldn't not use sponge daubers on this one!  The end result is waaaay out of my comfort zone; it's not really my 'style' of card, but I decided I'd share it with you anyway.  I'm just enjoying having the time to create, and post on my blog .... hopefully you'll like this card a bit more than I do (and a LOT more than my husband does, LOL).
