Happy... Watercoloring with a Stencil

Hello friends!  Today I have a card I have created for the STAMPlorations CAS Challenge: with a twist of Black this month...



                            ( Crazy Double Running Stitch RectangleHappy Word DieLeaf Prints Stencil)

To create this card I started by adding black soot distress ink onto a panel of cardstock, making sure to always start on the same end and work my way up with the ink.  I then die cut the panel to adhere onto my cardbase.  Next I used the Leaf Prints stencil, distress markers, and water to watercolor the leaf images onto watercolor paper.  I love the results and I was able to mix and match colors on each image, score!  Finally, I ran the happy die through my cutter in black and used a white chalk marker along the edges of the letters to help the word pop off of the black background.  The colorful sequins were the perfect finish.

I am also linking this up to the Kat Scrappiness WCMD Challenge: Make a Card

I can't wait to see what you will create for this months challenge!  Remember all products are welcome, and you can find complete rules on how the challenge works over on the blog!

Happy Crafting!
