Watercolored Sea Babies Mail Box

This is for today's TREEHOUSE THURSDAY CHALLENGE # 059 - Watercolor. This week Gloria choose a fun technique of watercoloring for the challenge. I can not remember the last time I used watercoloring to color. I had a blast making this. I was in the mood to make something other than a card so I looked over at my mounds of supplies on my unloved shelve and spyed this mini mail box. Well you should have smelt the rubber buring in my head. Ideas were going everywhere. I guess I should have put corks in my ears so that the ideas would not escape before I could use them. LOL. I decided not to use any dp to alter the outside since I liked the color that it already was. I used some craft cs punched with my beach border punch. My images are digital and they are from "Sea Babies" that was released this month and "Fun in the Sun" that was released a couple of months ago. Both sets are digital sets and can be found at TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITAL LINE.
Here is a side view of the crab from "Sea Babies" . I put some google eyes on him. He is so cute.
So come on and play along with us. Be sure to use THT059 in your keywords when you upload to Splitcoast Stamper and also be sure to provide us with a link over at the TREEHOUSE STAMPS CHALLNGE BLOG POST so you can be entered in the drawing for the weekly free $5 digi set. We would love to see what you come up with.

I love the idea too. We don't usually make mailbox but I think it is going to be a start. That mailbox is most amazing mailbox I ever saw. Thank you for sharing it.
