Watercolour windmill

Hi everyone, I received my new Darkroom Door windmill stamp on Friday and was keen to have a play with it. 

The background is made with brushos. I wet the watercolour paper, sprinkled cobalt blue powder and then misted with water again. A lot of the colour washed out and blended, but I think it looks a bit like clouds.

I'm linking up to a few challenges:
At Addicted to Stamps and More  they want us to use any material to make a mark on your project.

At Pretty Pink Posh they are celebrating with a watercolor blog hop.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday it's a masculine theme.

I love the windmill stamp and you made a great card with it. Your background came out well and it does look like clouds. Looks like you intended it to be like that. Good job.
