Flowing Friday

Hi Everyone.

Hope your are all well.  Thank you to all of you who left kind comments on my previous post :)

Here we are on day 5 of SmudgeFest, a week of challenges hosted by Smudgy Antics.

Today's challenge is Flowing Friday, to create a project using a flowing medium, ie watercolour, liquid ink, liquid glues, thinned out acrylics etc.   I decided to use watercolours.  Now I must warn you,  a painter I am NOT!!!

Here is my entry, let me know what you think :)

I have used an image from the Smitten set by Smeared Ink, she is backed by a watercolour painting from the internet, sorry guys, I'm not that talented, especially when it comes to painting!  I have coloured her with pro markers and the kids little box of paints (I don't have any), then I cut her out and mounted her on foam pads, added some feathers, but unfortunately I didn't have any shells, so I used the blue and white cherry blossoms instead,..............  if you close one eye and squint.................they still don't look like shells! hahaha

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge(s)
