One Card, Three Challenges

This month, Kathy at The Daily Marker is doing a 30 Day Colouring challenge. Now, I am not a fan of colouring. I don't own proper alcohol colouring markers and I just can't seem to manage watercolouring. However, today I think I found my colouring medium: watercolour pencils. I can add water with my water brush after colouring or leave them as is. #watchthisspace #theDailyMarker30Days

This morning Kathy was on a blog hop for the new release at Simon Says Stamp and I was inspired by her background. I decided to pull out my Misti and new Misti Corners (bought them with a store voucher I won from another store) to give it a try. I wanted to try the technique as the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday blog is to create your own background (here) .  I found that the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is to make a card for a special lady/girl (here) this week and the latest challenge at Pink & Main is Spring (here) .  With these three challenges decided upon, I had my technique (background), colours and St Patrick's Day theme (Spring) and recipient (For a Special lady/Girl - my friend Debbie) already decided.  I combined all three challenges on one card.

The challenge information:
Simon Says Stamp Monday: Make Your Own Background here
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday: Make a Card for a Special Lady/Girl here
Pink & Main: Spring here

I also whipped up a bonus card with the same background but in a different colour.  FYI I'm not entering this card in the challenges.

Alcohol Markers: Kaisercraft
Ink: Ranger, Stampin Up!
Stamps: Pink & Main, Hero Arts
Other: card, chipboard, flower, foam tape
