I'm back today with another challenge card that Nicole from Right At Home is hosting for National Craft Month. This time I chose to copy her technique of using masks to create a watercolor background for the Try a New Watercolor Technique. I have never done this before, and I do think I am hooked now! It offers just the right amount of messiness for my liking. I used my newest stamps, from Hello Bluebird, called Silly Birds, and the die set called Tropical Foliage. Instead of using masking paper, I just cut the Tropical Foliage from white cardstock, used removable adhesive to attach them to watercolor paper, and then painted around the edges, dis some splattering with the watercolor paint, and then removed the leaves. I then stamped the bird and branch separately, die cut them, and affixed them to the card. The sentiment from  Silly Birds was white heat embossed onto black card stock, and then I finished the card by adding a custom Nuvo Drop eye to the toucan and a few black Nuvo Drop embellishments.
