Thank You

Hey there!!

I'm stopping by with a card i made for WPlus 9 Designs Birthday Celebration Week - Stretch It Challenge. And by stretch it they mean doing something new or takes you out of your comfort zone. I tried a new stencil technique i learn at the Online Card Class:Stencils.

ETA (edited to add) - I'm entering this into Moxie Fab's Styling With Stencils Challenge!

I used watercolor with a stencil and it didn't turn out as bad as i thought!! I will definitely be doing this again. I washi taped a stencil to some watercolor paper and pulled out my watercolors. I started with a light purple, then went to a dark purple, then to a dark blue and finally to a lighter blue. It was messy and i love how the look isn;t crisp and has darker areas!!

While that was drying i stamped four feathers in purple and blue pigment ink, then cut them out. When the watercolor panel was dry, i wrapped black ribbon around it and tied it in a knot.

  4. Yep, Dana, you've done it again: proven that you and watercolours are a magical pair! I agree with the 'blurry' effect - soft and pretty! The pair of feathers + bow: perfect! Awesome-ness,++++!
