Make It Monday #282 with Betsy Stenciled Watercolored Backgrounds

My card for this week's MIM was a bit of a challenge for me.  I was trying to use the Butterfly cover plate, making my own stencil and that just didn't work too well. Her's is much softer.  I usually like things bold but I felt this was too bold.  So softened a bit with a MFT Stitched Square vellum
Used Vintage Lines in CP inks.
Echo Park leaf stencil.

Another card for CAS Watercolour 
I have been practicing with the PTI Peonies on Parade Watercolor Sheets and my flowers would always turn out one color.  Still need more practice but this is the best of them.  I like how the background turned out.  Used Distress Inks in pinks & green.  That is Twisted Citron not yellow.

Create Along with Us April 2017

My card is inspired by a card by a card made by Nicole
I used Ziggs pens to make the background and then used this Birthday cover plate in white.  Of course I didn't have the beautiful die she used below.
