Monochromatic Reminder in Red!

Hi Everyone!

I am back with a reminder about The Rainbow Card Challenge; you have 2 more weeks to get your card linked up!

We are midway through the first challenge at The Rainbow Card Challenge.  This month's monochromatic color is RED.  Hope you can join us!
For this card, I used a new to me set that was begging to see ink as well as my brand new Daniel Smith Watercolors that I bought from Lydia/aka Understand Blue.  She has a FB group dedicated to Daniel Smith watercolors and sells splits of the paints which makes them AFFORDABLE!!!!  You can check it our HERE~
I am just learning how to use watercolors- it is not as easy as it looks for sure!  But that is my crafty resolution for the new year- to learn how to use/improve my use of watercolors, especially the DS ones.
So for this card, I used Impression Obsession's Mushroom stamp by the talented Dina Kowal.  The sentiment comes from the Impression Obsession Happy Trails stamp set.  I thought that the mushroom would be a good first image to try the watercolors on.  Not overly detailed and only a few colors needed.  I have to say, it was fun using the paints and I am happy with my first DS watercoloring.
I am linking up to Impression Obsession's challenge, 'New Beginnings'.  I suspect you are wondering about the 'new beginnings' on this card.  Well, you would think, as a cardmaker, I would send out tons of snail mail.  I don't.  Can you relate?  I really, really struggle with writing inside the cards.  So this year is a 'new beginning' of sending out snail mail- hence the happy mail sentiment on the card.  This will go to a friend of mine in Indianapolis.  She sent me a Christmas card and I am remiss in responding to her.
And don't forget to link up your RED project at The Rainbow Card Challenge!
