MIM #161

Make It Monday Challenge
Watercolor Splats

I don't really use a lot of primary or darker colors on my cards except for maybe 'accents'. I generally prefer pastels. So to try the MIM challenge again, I went inside my comfort zone, but... 
I couldn't easily put my hands on dye inks in lighter colors, so I went with some pigment inks (although in this picture these colors are much deeper than in real life).
Now I know why I should have searched a little more for those dye inks.  The water splats do not show up as well.  However, I can see them and you will too if you look closely ;-)  
I liked the way  it turned out, plus I think it will pass as a masculine B-Day card that's going into the mail tonight.
