HLS January Challenges

Here goes a bit of reaching, I know.   I have one card that I am entering to all four of the HLS January challenges.  HLS Watercolor challenge - Optional Twist Stencil, HLS Mixed Media Challenge - Layers, HLS Anything Goes with Dies, and HLS January CAS Challenge - Stencil.   I think it is possible to put them all together.


The Altenew flower is colored with watercolors by way of the Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.
The background is lightly stenciled using Tim Holtz' Burlap stencil and some antinque linnen distress ink.
My sentiment is the handwritten hello die cut from WPlus9 and it is layered on the focal panel which is then layered on the card base.

It's my first time playing in most of these challenges, I love that there are several weeks for you to get your project done.  A week or 5 days just seems to fly by before I get to a challenge these days.

   


Thanks for stopping by!
