Watercolor Stencilling With Stampin' Up Decorative Masks


Well hello again! I am a stamping addict these days, and I'm sure I am D-R-I-V-I-N-G my hubby C-R-A-Z-Y with my crafts! But ... the kids have been outta school for over a month now & it's seriously my best escape when the going get's crazy! Besides, my girly 5 year old and I love to bond over our crafts these days and one day she may be too cool for these fun times (insert pouty face here as I really hope not)!




 My card today is rather girly, and it was a creation in the making. In other words... I did not know what it would look like until I was finished! I like the final product (don't get me wrong I was worried during the entire process that it was going to come out looking like muck)! Saying that, I am really glad it doesn't look like muck, as it is my submission for this week's color challenge over at Pals Paper Arts! I love a good color challenge, as it motivates me to play with colors that I would normally not put together on my own. Click on the icon below if you are as intrigued as I am to see all of the other creations showcasing this stunning combo!

When making this pretty creation, I used the Stampin' Up! Hearts & Stars Decorative Masks Stencil pictured below. With some watercolor paper, a few inks, and a white gel pen, this background actually came together pretty easily!
