Happy Birthday with Watercolor Stripes

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am so thankful that we had our first really spring-y day:  warmth, color, and birds singing. How wonderful!

Wanting a birthday card with a spring-y feel, I brushed Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink through Altenew's Watercolor Stripes Stencil and layered on a trio of flowers cut with Garden Picks Dies.  Having learned to practice even the simplest of techniques to avoid wrecking a card, I practiced splattering black acrylic paint with a brush.  I need to research how much to thin the paint, but I was pretty pleased with how and where the splatters came to rest.

Thanks so much for visiting,
