Bloggers Challenge ~ Watercolor

This is my last post till Monday.. We're heading camping for the weekend and i'm looking forward to a much needed rest.

This card was a remake from a crystal effects class I had here last night. It uses about 6 colors of classic ink pads and a waterbrush.
I started with the lightest colors and washed the color on, then slowly added each of the colors until i had a good balance of color. I still want to put crystal effects on those pumpkins.. Is that an addiction?
