Love You Mam xx

So... I don't do stamping, play with inks or masks or that new paste that people are using with stencils. I don't do anything messier than colouring with pro markers and using the odd bit of glitter.

Therefore my heart sank when I saw today's challenge at Less is More...


This time it is for you to use 

MASKING OR STENCILLING

on your creations.

Oh the horror! I remembered an article I read recently in a magazine about using random things as stencils and one of them was sequin waste. Out came the Christmas box and I located some pretty quickly but what to use as the colouring medium??  My only option was watercolour paints or emulsion test pots - the watercolours won...

 I used some cotton wool and dabbed gently some nearly dry paint on the waste and I loved the result - this might be my new favourite technique! As a topper I used an Anita's Dimensions flower - perfect match.

The colour scheme was inspired by today's theme at Allsorts Challenge Blog 'Pretty in Pink' and when I saw how pretty the flower looked I decided to make this a Mother's Day card inspired by the theme at Polkadoodles - Mum's the Word
Thanks for looking!
Sharon
