DTGD Challenges - 5 days of fun, Day 1

On the Dirty Challenges, you do need to be a SCS Member to play.  You can find information on that here.  Meanwhile, I will be showing you my cards over the next few days since there are about 5 challenges a day.  Oh so fun!!
 This is really my first official watercolor.  I have made attempts in the past -- they ended up in the trash.  I really liked the way this one turned out!  I was able to get some pretty vivid color.  My images are from Gina K Designs Garden Fresh.  I love the font Gina used in this set - it looks so hand written and personal.  This also qualifies for my favorite challenge Less is More - a fruity CAS card.
 I was so inspired by my blog friend Heather Telford over at Bits & Pieces- she does amazing cards with sponging of ink.  I loved the way the ink blended on my CAS Christmas card.  When I make more of these (which I will), I will change the type of ribbon to make it easier to mail.  The tree is a Mark's Finest Papers image from A Walk in the Woods and my MC is from Hero Arts Holiday Sayings.
This is a tissue box cover!  Again, CAS since it is for my son's bathroom.  I entered this for the ABC challenge, but CASED this from the Featured Stamper for  this week, Anna.  I can't remember the last time I made an ABC project.  I really enjoy making them!
That's it for my Saturday -- I just had fun all day!! :)
Thanks for stopping by - I'll be back tomorrow with more completed cards for more challenges!

Vicki, your fruity card is so cool! Your watercoloring looks awesome! I love the sponged ink on the second card...I find myself doing some sponging more often now because it just looks so cool. LOVE the tissue box cover. I made one a year or so ago and I'm still using it! I LOVE the simplicity of yours and might just make myself another one! Beautiful work! My Card is here

Lovely take on the sponged background block. The red and green blended looks great.

Wow, I love the colours you've used, they caught my eye immediately. I have decided to take a break from watercolouring because I am just so bad at it, I wish mine looked half as good as yours, it's fantastic.
