Camp Create 2017 Day 1 - Wonderful Watercolor

I'm participating in Camp Create 2017 at My Favorite Things.  I'm not sure I can keep up with the daily activities but I'll give it my best shot!

The activity for day 1 is to create a card using watercolor paints.  I chose to recreate the card that was demonstrated in the day 1 video - a galactic background using Prima watercolors.

Here is my card...

I used Canson 140lb watercolor paper and the Prima Classics watercolors.  The white spatter is Tim Holtz Picket Fence distress paint applied with the spatter brush.  The stacked die-cut word is from the Thanks and Hello die-namics.

I'll be honest...once I began painting this I thought it looked like a hot mess!  I nearly gave up but kept pushing through since I had already started and had watercolor paint everywhere!  If I look at it too closely I'm still not sure I like it but I did complete the activity so it counts and I earned today's badge!
