     Well I can't think of greater outdoors, than the outside of houses!  I created this watercolor for my BIL and his lady, who recently bought a new home.  As for the challenge I am entering, it is a new one to me.  I am linking up to the Paper Players Challenge #252, Ann's Theme Challenge, The Great Outdoors!

     I started with a white card base, and cut a panel of watercolor paper, slightly smaller.  My images are from the SU! set called Holiday Home, and are embossed with white embossing powder.  I them started playing with my new Spectrum Aqua pens, and this is what I came up with.  The small grass tufts at the bottom are one of my "go to" stamps from Art Impressions.  I added the tiny hearts over one house to indicate that love lives there.

     I hope you like my project, and that you have a fantastic week.

I don't know what it is about houses and cards, but I always seem to love them! Especially this one! Cute little houses and love the water coloring too. Precious.
