Tears......

I was inspired by the CASology challenge theme of Water 
and Less is More challenge using one layer and stencils....
When I saw the theme of 'Water' I thought of this sentiment and the tear drop.....

This is my card.....

I have used a Funky Fossil Stencil for the face, a Ryn stamp for the tear and
An Art Journey stamp for the sentiment.
Finishing off with a wash of pink watercolour, gloss on the tear 
and black perfect pearl as the eye liner.
I have always loved this sentiment......
Thanks for stopping by.

So clever how you've added the Ryn tear drop - that's really touching. The stencilled face is so sharp and clear, and those pops of pink make the whole thing really eye-catching.
