Sweet, Happy Teddy Bear.....
Today, I have a fun little watercolored and stenciled card to share with you! As most of my projects, this started as a bit of an experiment and some goofin' around.
It's no secret that I love Dylusions ink sprays. I thought it would be fun to use a few on a water colored type project. So, I started with some watercolor paper and a stencil! After adhering the stencil with some temporary adhesive, I added some color using the Dylusions sprays and an aqua brush. You can see that my application was rather random.....that's what I like about the watercolors---you can barely go wrong!
After the inks dried, I traced the stencil with my copic multiliner. Later, I added the birthday sentiment frrom Sheet 138B in the I Brake For Stamps Store....it scares me a bit that I no longer have to look up the reference on this sheet--I use it so much! It wouldn't be so odd if the sheet had a name like.....Birthday and Flowers, but 138B???? I'm hooked......
To pull the whole project together, I stamped, on a separate piece of water color paper, Sweet Teddy. He's watere colored, also, using distress ink and dylusions ink. After drying and trimming, I mounted him with some dimensional tape.
I made several things this past weekend, and had them on my table to film....my crafty girl voted the sweet teddy card her favorite.....I do agree! But, please come back to see what else kept me out of trouble the last few days ;)
