Inspiration Wednesday

Hi everyone, Laurel here today.
Watercolor is everywhere and I have had my Gelatos taunting me for awhile now.
Always intimidated by new things it takes me awhile to jump on the band wagon ;)
Anyhow, I decided it was time...

I was inspired by this print. 
I love texty backgrounds.

I started small, literally, and used some of my scraps of cardstock.
I colored some scribbly lines on a piece of white cardstock with the Gelatos.
Then just dripped on some water and painted over the scribbles to blend them.
Finally I used the Donna Poppies and stamped over top, cut out and added to the card.

I created the newsprint background using the Classified Newsprint stamp by Christy Tomlinson

Am I 'addicted' to the Gelatos? No... Will I use them again?  Most likely!
What about you?  What have you been intimidated by?
Now is the time to try it!
