Mixing It Up Part II

Just as I predicted, I'm back with a second card for Ellen Hutson's Mix It Up challenge with Winnie & Walter. ;) 



I thought this pretty, delicate Winnie & Walter heart worked perfectly with Julie's Be-you-tiful sentiment. The background was an experiment that actually worked! (I'm sure many others have done this, just not in my presence. :D) I combined ink smooshing with a stencil — I was worried at first when I saw how much ink leaked under the hearts, but I really like the finished effect. After I lifted the stencil and mopped up some of the extra ink with a tissue, I splattered the background with a bit of Perfect Pearls mist. I also sprayed the sentiment with sparkle mist; neither one was willing to show up in photographs. 



This card also works for two other challenges: What's the Good Word at Shopping Our Stash and Anything Goes with Dies at Happy Little Stampers. My snarky sister Chris just reminded me to add this to the Just Us Girls watercolouring challenge, too!

Beautiful card, I love how you have used the heart stencil then let the colour go wild. Looks wonderful and totally goes with the die cut heart.
