Happy Holidays!!

Well....not really holidays in this part...but that was the theme i chose for this card. 

Again I was experimenting with making my own stencils and making patterns with them. I tried out this sea side pattern on my card and I think it turned out ok. I need to improve the quality of my stencils though. Still using card stock, which is not very firm when i use paint to stencil the pattern. Wonder where I can get hold of acetate sheets!

So here is the card with my stenciling. You'll notice that one of the shell patterns is a little smudged! :-P 

 
The wave pattern was stenciled and then cut out. Then I used water colour pencils to colour it. 



The shells were stenciled using acrylic water colours.


The sentiment was traced and then written over with a black sketch pen. The starfish was stenciled on red card stock and then cut out.The little purple lines and dots in the center were hand drawn.
