thinking of you 29

Mona Pendleton | Monday, April 24, 2017 @ 12:51 PM | , ,


Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a stenciled water colored background. 
I created a water colored background piece behind the focal point using a stencil from my stash. For the focal point, I water colored a pretty blossom and leaves from the Doodlie-do set:
I've also have a bouquet of oil painted roses to share inspired by Nancy Medina. I painted this on a 12" x 12" canvas.
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the Sunday Stamps challenge:
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge:

Many thanks for stopping by!
