A little bit of watercolours

I started this card off using watercolour paper and
messing with some fluid washes of watercolour paints.
once dry I used Sheena Douglas stencil and used my watercolour sponge to add a darker green. Using some stamps for bushes and twigs as well as some drawn by myself to add a woodland effect.
The Faerie is a stamp from Crafters companion. Using watercolour card this time to cut out and raise I used watercolour paints and inks to colour her.
Please excuse the marking on the photo I used as these are normally available to see on my Facebook page for my artwork and available cards and gifts throughout the year.
I truly enjoyed making this card and it seems to have thrown me back into doing watercolours again. I have produced a few so will post them at some point soon.
Happy Crafting

This is absolutely beautiful Holly. The stamps and stencils work in perfect harmony together and the Fairy is adorable, great choice of colour palette too. Happy Crafting, Sandra x

I was really amazed how this turned out and was pleased with it although at times we all think our work is not as good as it could be lol but I did love doing this one
