Here is a Clean and Simple (CAS) card that I designed with a marker/watercolor technique using the CQC290 ColourQChallenge along with the Splitcoaststampers CAS323 Happy May! Challenge (see details here and gallery here) and WT530 Flutter By, Butterfly Challenge (see details here and gallery here).
Since the CAS323 Challenge is a word challenge using the month of "May" as the word- "M"= Masking, Mixed Media, "A"= Aqua and "Y"= Yours (used four times in the Scripture Verse).
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites to check out the Design Team samples as well as their fabulous galleries!
To create this card:
Using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, stamp the flower from Choose Happiness onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Create a mask for the same flower stamp from a sticky note or scrap piece of paper, cover the initial stamped flower and re-ink the stamp using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp next to the masked image (overlapping a bit).
Repeat the above steps for the third flower as well as the stems.
Color the flowers using Stampin’ Write Markers- Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and retired Poppy Parade.
Color the stems and around the flowers in the background with the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write marker, spritz the entire image with water, heat with the Heat Tool to dry and re-apply color/spritz as needed (being mindful of not using too much water with the Whisper White cardstock so it will not "pill").
Once you are satisfied with the flowers and stems, add shadows with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker and splatter with the retired Color Spritzer Tool and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker.
Ink the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with Blushing Bride Classic Ink and stamp a bit of splatter on the panel.
Re-mask the flowers and repeatedly stamp the border image from Choose Happiness with Blushing Bride Classic Ink.
Stamp the sentiment with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of retired Poppy Parade cardstock, trim and mount onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto the Coastal Cabana card base.
Ink the butterfly image from Papillon Potpourri using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp twice onto a retired piece of Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper (DSP) and punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch.
Use the Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker to add a few highlights to the flower centers and mount the butterflies to the card front to finish off the card.

Another beautiful card! I really like your style. And I LOVE that you've put Scripture on your cards. It's been a while since I've checked out ODBD, I think it's time for a visit.
