cQc128: Feel Better Soon

This week's colourQ challenge was a tough one for me. The colors were Glorious Green, Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, Going Grey and Ivory. I like the color green but I rarely use it as a main color in my cards. Typically I use it as accent color for my floral themed cards.

I watercolored the monsters from the Make a Monster stamp set from Stampin' Up! I watercolored them using the SU watercolor crayons. This is the first time I have used the watercolor crayons. They were pretty easy to use!

The Stamps
SU Make a Monster
SU Word Play

The Colors
Glorious Green (I substituted Garden Green)
