Watercolouring

 Morning and welcome to my new follower AUTUMN 

We have a new ATG/Watercolouring challenge at 613 Avenue Create.

I made a DL card and made a watercolour strip using my watercolours from Art By Marlene.

I then overstamped with an IndigoBlu stamp and added splatters then glued on an old paint brush over some stencilling (because the background looked too bare lol) stencils from Stencil Girl and Creative Expressions.
