Watercolor Beached Boat

The challenge over at Magical Monday this week is to take the beached boat and make a gate fold card out of it. Skip on over there to get your free image and check out the pretty cards.
Since I really, really like this image; I wanted it to be the focus of the card without a lot of extras around it. I printed it on light blue card stock and colored it with watercolor pencils. This is one of my first attempts at watercoloring.
Here's the image all colored...

...here's the finished product! I think I'm hooked!!
