"Watercolor" Sympathy

Good morning!  Today I'm going for my first jog in over 6 months.  I have been having horrible Achilles tendon pain for about a year and I finally went to the doctor instead of running through the pain.  After a LONG recovery, I finally have the go ahead to start jogging again.  WOO HOO!  So, we are heading to our favorite jogging trail this morning for a nice slow, short jog.  This has absolutely nothing to do with my card today, however.  HA!

I made this card last week while I was finally going through the Card Camp class I signed up for.  I'm only a month or so late to the class but at least I'm getting some inspiration.  My idea for this card came from a water color idea talked about in the class.  I used the color inspiration from week 1 and rolled with it. 

To get the watercolor look, I squished my ink pads on a large acrylic block, sprayed them with shine spray, and sort of dragged my watercolor paper through the watery mess I had created.  In the end, it made a pretty cool looking design.  What do you think?

Have a great weekend!!!  I hopefully won't be hobbling around the house tomorrow.  We'll see.  ;)
