Day 15... Watercolor Challenge Day

Since today is Thursday, Terra and I have decided to coordinate our projects to offer you a challenge. Today's challenge is WATERCOLORING! You can watercolor a picture, a background, one little spot, anything you want as long a you watercolor!!! Remember when you participate in our challenges on Monday's and Thursday's, you get more entires into the drawing for the blog candy!

In my project I used a Bombshell image, but decided that I wanted to make it a spooky pirate ship instead of a colorful sailing ship. I used SU watercolor pencils and colored the whole picture, adding perfect pearls in spots to give it a little shimmer. The patterned paper is some that i got from Michael's eons ago. Those who know me well know that I cannot walk out of any craft store without patterned paper, no matter what!!! It hurts when I have to leave a store without my paper fix!! LOL
