Humpty Dumpty Had a Great "Water" Fall

Ok so sometimes you just have to share the funny outcomes too. This was supposed to be an attempt at watercoloring with markers. Clearly, mine did not work quite as well as it did here. I don't know what lb paper I have but it's not 140 like it says in the tutorial. Anyway so I started out with Humpty's big ole head and put a little bit of yellow on the top and bottom but when I tried to drag the color with the watercolor pen it wouldn't drag it. The color was just sitting there in a blob on top of his the more I tried the worse it got....stupid big headed egg man. I mean really! I was going for a very pale yellow look. As you can see I didn't quite achieve this effect. The more I tried the worse it got. I kept adding water to try to lighten..dabbed...water....dabbed...then his big ole egg head ended up smeared into the sky but I'm calling it sun. LOL! Anyway I continued because I'm just stupid that way and basically this is what I ended up with. I may try again..(not sure at this frustrated point) with the 140 lb paper but I have to be of now... I'm not a big fan of watercolor with markers in this respect. I prefer to pick up the color from my little pallette thingy. Oh well what can I say? Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall...Humpty Dumpty stressed me out ya'll!

That is funny! Not to poke fun mind you. It seems like something that would happen to me. Your card is still adorable.
