February 12, 2014 Watercolor Serene Silhouettes

SU Serene Silhouettes, cs DCWV, Tim Holtz tiny stapler, Distress Ink Markers, water brush

Made this card for a Chemo buddy that was needing some extra encouragement this week love doing the distress markers and water brush - so fun and I do like the effects.  I embossed the birds/limbs with a cobalt blue embossing powder then used a matching blue cs for mounting.  I used water color paper for the focal image.  Challenges:
     Sketch Saturday - Follow sketch
     Make it Monday - Anything Goes inspirational
