Watercolor and Masking

Good morning! I have been having lots of fun with watercolor paints the past couple of days - still one of my favorite techniques right now! Here is one I worked on with some Neat and Tangled stamps:

I also created this for the current challenge at Little Tangles - Masking:
Also linking this up with this weeks Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Happy Birthday!

I created my mask by using some Post It adhesive paper, and roughly tearing a circle shape. I used that in the center of my watercolor panel to mask out the area for my sentiment. Then I used the Ink Splash stamp set to add my color. I painted right on the stamp with wet watercolor paint, then stamped around the mask.

Once I was done stamping, I pulled off my mask, then lightly misted it all with water to soften the edges up a bit. Once that dried, I stamped my sentiment from Just for You, added a little bling strip from Eyelet Outlet, then matted it on some Bazzil Cardstock.

Such a fun challenge! Thanks for taking a look! Have a great weekend!
