Case Study #180 & Wplus9 Week 4

Hi there!

Today I have a card to share that I made for a couple of challenges.
Firstly, it's for the most recent Case Study Challenge, where they're featuring one of my
favourite stampers: Danielle Flanders.

As inspired as I was by this card, I was actually more inspired
by the card that Danielle made for the challenge:

Isn't it cool?
Since I have that cover plate, I decided to use it like a mask with watercolours,
just like Danielle did.

Here's my card:

After using the cover plate as a stencil and adding some splatter,
I added some die cut/stamped Wplus9 Fanciful Feathers, attached with a button.
The sentiment is also from Fanciful Feathers.

Now, I have to say that adding the splatter with the paintbrush
like that was totally out of my comfort zone -- because I couldn't control exactly where it went!
So, I'm linking this up to WPlus9's Birthday Celebration Week 4 Challenge: Stretch It,
because this messy technique was a stretch for me.

Thanks for looking!

Gosh, Leigh, you needn't have worried about the splatter because it looks as if you DID somehow have control of it. It fell perfectly onto your gorgeous design, embellished just right with the flowers and button!! Hugs, Darnell
