Watercolour vase

Watercolour techniques are everywhere at the moment, and I am loving them!  As a total novice at anything 'arty', I love that the supplies needed are not expensive and in fact you can use inks etc that you might already have.  Just buy some true watercolour paper, and some sort of brush or aqua painter, and you can start to create some amazing effects  The challenge at Less is More this week is just that - use water to move your colour - so I am entering a card I have made - my very first watercolour card - which I created following a tutorial by Dawn Wolesagle from WPlus9.  I didn't have the stamps she used, but I did have another WPlus9 stamp set, called Folk Art Florals, so I had a 'go'.  I love the result, but of course, need to practise a lot more!  I'm showing it here, just to be part of this challenge.

 
I used Distress markers for the colour, just scribbling them onto an acrylic block and spritzing with water to dilute.  The sentiment by Simon Says Stamp is stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia.
