Playing with Watercolour

Hi all :-) The sun is shining and the birds are chirping ,,, what a lovely day :-)

I am here to share a card I made from Day 1 of the Watercolor for Cardmakers Class

I love the technique that Jennifer Rzaza demonstrated where you pool some watercolour then lay a stencil over it and let it dry.

I used Faded Jeans and Peacock Feathers Distress inks and a Tim Holtz Dot Fade Stencil to create this subtle background. I also used the same inks to colour a tag and then overlayed with vellum, stamped with white opaque stazon.

I am going to have a go at this technique again, using stronger colours, I really LOVE the effect of this ! 

I didn't know what sentiment to add so I left it plain, suitable for any occasion really don't ya think :-)
