Watercolor Technique - Used

to use and created these thank-you cards 
that I gave to my parents to use.
My dad just had knee replacement surgery 
and will probably have a few thank-you 
cards needing to be sent out when 
he's feeling better.  
I spent most of Wednesday and Thursday 
of this week with them, 
trying my best to help them out.

I tried to keep a "springy" feel with pastel 
markers on the acrylic block 
and then spritzed with water.
The end result was just beautiful. OOoooooo!

And then I used a darker set of markers.  
Which do you like better?
I made six of the cards and also had 
matching envelopes.  
The base card stock is Very Vanilla, 
as well as the envelopes.
The black ink is the Black StazOn.  
Floral Flourishes is the larger stamp image stamp set, 
as well as what was used on the envelopes, and the Photopolymer Another Thank You stamp set 
was used for the sentiment.

Hope my dad keeps getting better.
