CAS Watercolour December Reminder

What?  Not a Christmas Card?
I just had to play with my new Sanna Libbert Stencil from ARTlorations.

I was inspired by Shirley's (shirley-bee's stamping stuff) fun card!

Here is my version !

I began by taping down the 4 masked pieces from Sanna's "Senecio 1" stencil/mask 
onto Strathmore Bristol Paper using painter's tape.
Then sprinkled 7 different Brushos onto the paper and spritzed with water.

I used Shirley's tip to use a kitchen paper roll to dab the excess water.
Worked Great!  Then when dry I removed the masks
and die cut with CUTplorations Crazy Running Stitch Die and added my stamped sentiment.

Next I used my 05 Art Pen to draw outlines around the flower images and lines to make them pop!

Next added fun foam to my main image and popped up onto my die cut card front.
I was so pleased with my colorful card thanks to Sanna and Shirley. .
Thank you my dear friends.

You still have until the 24th to play along with our CAS December Watercolour Challenge.  The winners will be announced on the 28th.  Happy Holidays to all!
