MOJO Monday- using Verve's Peacock "You must be the change"

Hello Crafty Friends.

For several months I have been pinning watercolor projects on my Pinterest board in hopes that I could create something even half as good as the water color projects pinned.  (My goodness, cardmakers are so talented with their watercoloring.)  One person that I have enjoyed following is Kelly Klapstein of Kelly Creates.  She has shared projects all summer long using her Tombow markers and has kindly shared videos, too.  In the most recent issue of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine she created a beautiful poppy (see page 50)- and seeing that was the final push to play with my Tombows again.  Mind you, I am not brave enough to freely create images like Kelly but I did watercolor a stamped card image.

The card sketch followed this week's MOJO Monday sketch:
I changed it slightly for my card: 
The stamp set used is Moments Remembered from Verve Stamps.  It was colored using the Tombows and after drying gold Stickles was applied to the tail feathers.
It was foam adhered onto several layers of My Mind's Eye "Remarkable" paper.  The banner dies are my often used Cheery Lynn, Pierced Banners.
The inside has a sentiment from the Moments Remembered set and a piece of the MME paper.
The watercolor card was completed with a piece of yellow hemp.
Thanks for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed my wee step into the watercolor world.  Thanks to Kelly Klapstein for her inspiring watercolor projects!

Have a happy crafty day.
