You're Smokin' HOT!

Hi ya friends,
Today I'm hopping along with Pretty Pink Posh for the...

I thought it would be fun to join & practice watercoloring since that is probably the hardest color medium for me--- but I do enjoy it!

Here's my watercolor piece: (Sorry, you know my photog skills are worse than my watercolor skills :(
 When I think of watercoloring, I think pretty... flowers & butterflies & such. But I decided I was going to step out of the box & watercolor something F-U-N!   I used a new set I picked up from Lawn Fawn called Let's BBQ. I luuuved the images & punny sayings in this set...however... in my neck of the woods one must specify what someone is "smokin'" because it could NOT be a nice thing... for example: "You're smokin'_____!" (Insert NOT nice thing there.) So I made sure to specify "You're smokin' HOT!" *Ü*

Here's a closer peek at that juicy T-bone on the grill:
 I should mention I used Distress Inks for the whole panel. Even though you can't tell, I used the Wink of Stella pen on the BBQ grill & flames. I mixed Barn Door & Vintage Photo to give that steak a medium cooked look. (Sorry vegetarians...)

Here's a peek of the innies:
Don't ask me why I added a mustard bottle next to the relish sentiment???  Anyhoo, I used the new Wonky Stitches die from Avery Elle to frame the inside panel-LUV!

I thought this would make a fun Father's Day card *Ü* I will list all the Distress Colors I used below.

Thanks so much for peeking today!
Have a well-done day!
