Garden Silhouettes- CAS Watercolour Challenge

Welcome and meet today's card.
Time for another card for the 

Great theme this month....Garden.

For the challenge this month, we ask that you include a garden and not just a flower.

We welcome Nonni from Nonni's Handmade Cards as our GD this month.  

Here's what I did to create my card.
I began by masking off my card front so I would have a nice clean white border when I was done.
Next, I inked the back of Mini Sweet Peas stencil with Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks, sprayed with water and pressed onto my paper to give me a monoprint.
*Be sure to let your paper dry when working with Distress Oxide inks, they smear when wet.*

When that was all dry, I stamped these flowers from Art Journey over the top using some more Distress Oxide inks.
I decided not to add a sentiment so my card could be used for any occasion.

I hope you will come and play along with us.
