Watercolor Wednesday - The Greeting Farm

Hi Everyone! I'm back with my last Watercolor Wednesday post for 2014 and I am in LOVE with this card I'm sharing. I recently got my hands on some peerless watercolors and have been playing with them a LOT. I've been intrigued by these for some time and I finally took the plunge. I purchased the main pack as well as the bonus pack so I have a total of 60 colors to work with. O.M.G. These things are Ah-MAZING! So much color packed into a little area. The blend like buttah! Seriously, I am in love and so happy to have them added into my watercolor arsenal. I cut little 1x1 squares to create a travel palette. I love that I can take these anywhere so I can color easily at the kitchen table with 60 colors right at my finger tips while watching a movie with my hubby. Nothing like being able to color and spend quality time together. :)

I almost left the card without a sentiment because I couldn't find one I liked but as I looked again at the Together Anywhere stamp set, I saw the Awesome and the Together from the different sentiments and decided to merge them together with some simple masking of the stamp before I inked it and created my own custom sentiment perfect for the card. I think I am going to give this one to my hubby for valentine's day - can never start too early, right?! I kept the card very simple as I really think the coloring is the feature here. I'm starting to think I just can't do layers. Plus, I really want to try to mail more cards in 2015 so it's best to keep them simple so I have no excuse not to slap a forever stamp on an envelope and put them in the mailbox!

Here is a close up of the coloring. It is fun experimenting with skin colors. haha I think Ian looks a little sunburnt here. I do love the sunset background though. Seriously, look at how those colors just blend so pretty into each other! I took my inspiration from the Bo Bunny papers I received in my Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit. Those papers are gorgeous! Has my two favorite colors - purple and teal - LUSH! I think I need to get my hands on a full pad. hehe

I would also like to enter my card in the following challenge:
