Floral Gatefold

This week the challenge at SweetStamps is watercolor. I was happy to be able to use a new SweetStamps stamp as my image. I used the marker watercoloring technique from the Jun/Jul 2008 TJ newsletter to watercolor my image. The markers I used were distress markers.
City Crafters had the challenge, Wishi Washi where we are to use washi tape and only two other items. I used washi tape along the top and bottom of the card. My two items were the image panel and the diecut frame.
The Mark's Finest Papers Speedy Fox and Friends challenge is to use a different fold. My card is a gate fold card. If you look closely, you can see the split in the center of the card.
Finally, the Sunday challenge at Ink on my Fingers is Green Tambourine, use green. My card base and all of the leaves and stems are green.
