Close to my Heart 446-447-448

These sweet little critters were another GoodWill purchase.  I love when I find bargains like these.  These little images are so cute and being open lined they worked perfectly for this application.

Still re-visiting my Stenciled class.  This video was on using water colors to paint over your stencils.  While I knew you could do it I just forget all the fun things you can do with stencils for different looks.  I used Michaels Water Color paper and wet the surface first then used a broad brush to swipe color from my Kraft mat where I had scribbled with some distress markers.

I let it dry by my furnace register while I got a pot of Pinto Beans started.  It sure smells good in here.

When I came back the rest of this card just popped into my head and voila`  a Star is born.   I stamped, colored with pencils and blender pen, cut out and pasted down the images.  I had first stamped the trio of tulips onto the water colored panel so I would know where to place them.
