CAS Watercolour March Challenge ~ Garden

Saturday morning here and I have a few minutes to squeak in a watercolor card for this months CAS Watercolour March Challenge.
Friends it is all about "garden" this month because I think we are all looking forward to seeing the pops of color come through the earth, dirty or white!
I used an old Penny Black wooden stamp called Brush Tulips.  I colored the flowers and stems with a marker and spritzed with water before laying it down on the watercolor paper.
This would be a pretty easy one to mass produce and use different sentiments to cover all card possibilities!
Heart Hugs, friends!
