XOXOXO.....

Happy Valentines Day x
Here is today's card.....
I started with die cutting the bird and the branch from masking sticky paper.
I applied the mask and also used masking fluid to extend the branch.

I used Zigs for the water coloured background.
The sentiment has been stamped with grey ink and 
the top left enhanced with grey zigs and pearlescent.

I was inspired by the PaperArtsy Challenge - Masks
and this glorious creation.....
My colour inspiration is from Rubber Dance - Pink/Green/Grey
And
My style of CAS with a Love theme from CAS Watercolour Challenge
Another fun day.
Trying my best and learning all the time with water colouring 
and masking techniques.
Thank you for stopping by....Always appreciated.
