My first challenge ever and its with AAA Cards!

This is my first entry.  I have never entered in a challenge!  I know sounds crazy but this is my first!!

Below are two cards I made using the challenge found at AAA Cards.  You can use any watercolor media you prefer.
 I used the spray pritzer from Close To My Heart.  Added a few drops of blush reinker and the rest water.  I sprayed until I got the soft background I wanted.  The butterflies are stickers I got from the dollar store (7-8 for $1.00) and I could not resist getting 6 packs all in different colors.  This one from a black and white set of 7.  I added 3 rhinestones also from Close To My Heart and washi tape that I received as a gift. 

 Here is the first card I tried it on.  I like it but the wet ink made the card a little flimsy so I made the card above with layers of cardstock to give it strength. 

 Thanks for visiting and hope to see your comments and your artwork too!  Theresa

 "Use any watercoloring media you enjoy most. Have fun with wild colorful watercolor Embossings, or  Fine Art paintings, Color washes and splashes. Your watercoloring can be the background or the detail, an embellishment or die cut- we're very open to design and technique. We ask that your submission be in the CAS style. And this week please tell us about your paints of choice."
