Watercolor challenges and a little more

Howdy and Happy Saturday to you! Hope your getting all inky this weekend. I know I am! I missed my stamp time and have been trying really hard to get my stamping fix. I've been busy checking out the challenges on SCS and had the chance to do a few more of them. I don't think I'll be able to get to all of them, but I'm sure gonna give it my best try.
Here are a couple of the cards I made last night and today.

Both of these cards were for Christine's (ChristineCreations) watercolor challenge. The Changito card is also for Julie's white card challenge. I think I'm getting the hang of this watercolor thing. It sure helps if you have good watercolor paper to work with. Mine is Acquarello watercolour paper by Fabriano that I picked up in the art section at Hobby Lobby. Both of these were done using re-inkers and my aqua painter.
The Robin card is for Laura's (scrapnextras) distress it challenge and Julia's (JuliaS) sew it challenge. Don't you just love that cute little Robin. He's from Stamp Happens and I've had him for some time but I think this is only the second time he's seen ink. Poor little guy!

I also got the chance to do Joan Ervin's silhoutte challenge. At first I started to reach for my Blush stamp from Penny Black, but while I was searching for it, I came across my Seaside Sketches and thought that the little girl would make a great silhouette stamp. All I had to do was stamp her image and then fill her in with my black marker. I then sponged the colors of sunset around her and framed her in to emphasize her image a little more. I am very pleased with the results.
