Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Penny Black
I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle from water color paper. then i placed a Penny Black stencil over the panel. I used the Slate Spectrum Aqua Marker and scribbled it on a clear block, then added some water to it. With a paint brush i colored the stencil, i found that less water is better!!

I laid down a wash of light color, then went in with the actual marker and spread that out a little with a damp brush. When it was semi dry i added a little bit more marker, and just barely spread the ink out.

While the panel was drying i stamped the snowflake and sentiment banner, one with grey pigment ink and the other with distress ink. Then i fussy cut them out.

Before i added the flags i mixed up some more Slate and water and flicked the ink over the panel. When that was dry i placed the flags over the panel and used a paper peicer to punch some holes. I used a need and some twine to stitch in a hanger for the banners.  Last i added a few glitter gems to the banners and added the panel to a black card base.
