Thinking of YOU card using Watercolors

Okay, this is the first card that i've attempted no line water coloring on.  I have a lot to learn.  I do like the results of this card so thought that i'd give it to my friend Cindy with whom is having surgery today.  
I've been attempting to use various mediums for Water coloring and practicing.  



I stamped the flowers- Tim Holtz Blossom Stamps with Antique Linen Distress ink and then colored the image using my Watercolor Pencils and Distress ink.  I've found after many attempts that i really like a #8 Watercolor brush rather than the Brushes that have the water reservoir. I find that i get way too much water from those brushes.  The sentiment is an old Stampin'up stamp that i just cut out.

Bible Art Journal page using John 15:12

Hi Everyone, I have another Bible Art Journal page to share today. It comes from John 15:12
" My Command is this: Love each other as i have loved you." Pretty simple and Direct, Right? Well maybe not always Simple.

To Create this page i looked at my Complete Guide to Bible Art Journaling book to draw the cute little Owl and the heart banner.  I created the words myself and i added all of the bubbles to give my page a little more pizzaz and color.  All of the images were colored with my inktense pencils by Derwent. I just love these pencils. They  are so vibrant once you add water to them and they are ink instead of paint. The only downfall about them is that you cannot move the color once they are dry.



Challenges that i'd like to enter with this page includes:

Artistic Inspirations #177 Anything goes (1/3)
Color Inspiration Monday #21 Anything goes UL

Bible Art Journaling page to share today- Luke 12:27-28

Hi Friends, I hope that you are having a wonderful Weekend! I have a Bible Art Journaling page to share with all of you today.

"Look at the Lilies and how they grow. If God cares wonderfully for the flowers, he will certainly care for you." Luke 12:27-28
This is created in my Inspire bible. The verse was already on the page but Once again, i looked at a picture to draw my lily. Making art journal pages has been a lot of fun and i've been practicing my drawing skills.  I used inktense pencils to color this image and the verse was highlighted with a yellow gel highlighter.
