Re-acquainted myself with watercolouring

Good morning everyone I hope you are all well, or getting there, on this beautiful sunshiny morning after two very dull wet days!
It's car M.O.T. time again, got to take it in this morning so please wish me luck, I've got everything crossed that can be crossed LOL.

Stop Press, my car has passed it's M.O.T. Not bad for an old banger :o) 
Whilst looking for something else, as you do, I came across my sadly neclected watercolour pencils, so I decided to play with them. Must practice my blending with them, it is so easy with Copics! Anyhow, this is the first one for many moons!

8x8 card base made using plain white card.
Embossalicious 8x8 folder used on pearlised white card for the backing. 
DZ Doodles image printed onto white linen card from Papermill Direct, then watercoloured with Caran D'Ache pencils before being cut out with Spellbinder's Grand Nesties. Orange card is Bazzill.  I hope you like it :o)
