Faux watercolouring

One of the techniques I learn on a recent on line class was a faux water colour look.  Here's my take on this technique

Faux watercolouring with a Penny Black stencil

I used a Penny Black stencil on some linen card stock and used distress ink to sponge on.  I moved the stencil slightly and drew round it with a black pen.  Then I took an aqua brush and added some water.  The sentiment is from Kaisercraft.

This card is for a work friend who is celebrating her birthday on Sunday.  I gave her the card today and she loved it... always a bonus!
 I also want to send you over to Die Cut Divas to meet out guest this month... none other than the uber talented Kelly Booth
