The theme this month at CAS Mix Up is Things with Wings and is a watercolour challenge.
This means that some form of water colouring should be present.

For my card I chose a favourite old Memory Box die called Chloe and used the backing die to make a stencil from Mylar. I then stamped the script background stamp through the stencil and embossed in white embossing powder. After heat setting I placed the stencil back over the stamping and inked with three shades of Distress Oxide inks using blending brushes. (Salty Ocean, Salvaged Patina and  Tumbled Glass) I then just added a few droplets of water and blotted with a paper towel. I adhered the matching filigree die cut over the inking and added a few tiny pearls.
It's a simple look but It's a little involved to achieve but I'll probably be quicker next time!
Do join in the fun with some water coloured wings over at CAS Mix Up!
