Watercoloring Fun - AAA Cards

Are you ready to get inky?  It's time to play with a bit of watercoloring 
fun at the AAA Card Challenge this week! 
 I got inky, too!!  When I was done and looked at my fingers - whoo -
 lots of ink all over them.  I'm not really sure how that 
happened, either.  Oh, well!  Who's worried?  Not me!!  
Gettin' inky is the name of the game.  It's time to "Play".
Anyway, I did a background watercolor wash for my octopus!  
I only used ink with an Aqua Painter and painted the color right on the 
paper over the octopus who was stamped with StazOn Black ink.
Don't you think he's so cute?
The "thank you" sentiment from the Lots of Thanks stamp set 
 has bubbles coming up from it 
- after all, it's under water, right?  Ha!

I'm creating the thank-you cards for our 
Vacation Bible School event, which is "Weird Animals" this year.  So much fun!!

This card is nice and CAS.  I made an earlier 
one that I liked, but wasn't as clean or simple . . . 
So you can see that I did the background wash 
with this cute card, but there is a lot going on with the little fishes, 
crab, and multiple layers in several spots.  I felt like the card could be CASier (is that a word?)
Well, enjoy playing, friends!  Cannot wait to see what 
you come up with - I love, love,love visiting the blogs and seeing 
all your yummy creations!!  All of you are so very talented.
I love to read your comments, too!

Thanks ever so much for stopping by ~~ Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!
