Moxie Fab's Wonder of Watercolor

Watercoloring is something I love!
Watercoloring with ink has it's challenges. Sort of have to learn some techniques
and go with happy happinstance!
Picked up a couple of fishy stamps while out of town. Inked them with several PTI colors, spritzed with water, and stamped. Ummm, interesting!
Background pretty much done the same way, with a seaweed stamp and some leafy stamping from PTI's, Harvest Berries (looked kinda seaweedy to me!). Scattered areas of ink watercoloring for underwater effect. Added stamping (and spritzing) of a sunshine stamp from Hello Sunshine (PTI) and a sentiment (embossed ombre style), sprayed several times with Mr. Hueys Shine.
Clear dots are a raindrop sticky thing from Joanne's.
Just had to add the real shell over the twine.
The challenge runs until May
