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!

Tim's instructions on his video. I love the challenges that Linda puts put there for us every week at Studio L3 blog. So much fun! After I made the backgrounds, I stamped Mona on one and tore around her. I tore up the flap from opne of the boxes I just got from an online order from SSSS and peeled back the paper to expose the corrugated part. Sprayed it with Ranger's Expresso mist and then over the top of that, sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls mist. Yummy sparkle in real life. doubt the camera picked up on that. Gotta get it in the mail today though as it has also become listmom, Gloria's birthday card. LOL. Since i used the box, I am also entering this over at the Inspiration emporium blog where the challenge is to use packaging.
