Grungy Monday #8, SSSS, Show Me Some Wendy, and Making Art Wendy Style #13

Here it is, only Monday, and I have combined all of these challenges and gotten not one, but two cards made up using the technique of Tim's described on Linda's blog for the Grungy Monday challenge this week. It also fits the topic for SSSS, Show Me Some Wendy challenge this week, so entering there as well. It also meets the challenge on the Everything Wendy Vecchi yahoo group for Making Art Wendy Style, #13. I used watercolor paper and stamps from Wendy's Artfully Said,Botanical Art, and Card art Essentials sets. I used Adirondack inks in mountain  rose, sunset orange, purple twilight,clover, and meadow. Then India Ink black for the words.I blended some Pumice Stone distress ink around the edges and I smeared some ink in broken china and stormy sky on my craft mat and misted with water and then ever so slightly dipped areas into it and wish I had been a bit more careful as I kind of smeared some of the flowers, but we are going for watercolored, aren't we! Tim would say, "Embrace your Imperfection!" I sure hope I can keep playing along now. Feels good to have creatd something for the challenge again!

I'd call this a GUARANTEED happy birthday, Kathy! What a fun, happy, beautiful work of art. The GM08 technique looks great, and the stamps you used couldn't be better. They look like little fireworks!

I can't stop looking at this. It makes me smile.

Kathy, I love this - especially the splatters. It gives the affect of rain coming down on the flowers. Terrific!
