Watercolor Wonder

This card is actually a gift certificate one of hubby's coworkers purchased for his wife as a Christmas gift:

When my hubby told me he used my watercolor Wonder Crayons to actually paint the small portrait for the card, I was amazed! I thought he had used his "special" artist paints (for those of you who don't know, my hubby is a USMC combat artist; for more info on that, go here). With just Soft Subtles & Rich Regals crayons and a watercolor brush, he created the small portrait. (The small portrait is just a sample for the recipient. Hubby will paint a larger painting in oil of photos yet to be taken.)
