I have some unexpected free time this weekend so I was able to do another card for our Featured Stamper, Tina Delong, aka GardenDiva! HERE is the beautiful card I chose to CASE. I went for a CAS version, changing the jar of lavender to a vase of grass and made a sponged bg instead. I also added a sentiment.
The bg is stenciled with spritzed watercolours. You don't need any expensive sprays to spritz bg's, even an inexpensive set of watercolours, means you can mix up any colour and rub your finger across a toothbrush dipped in the paint to spritz a finer mist. If you want larger splats of paint you can dip the handle of a paintbrush into the paint, hold it over the paper and then flick it with your fingers on the opposite hand. I would only suggest that you experiment on a scrap piece of paper to figure out how hard to flick, and what direction the paint splats will fly!

Acts 3:19 is totally on track for me right now. We've had sooo much sickness and unemployment in our family. The Lord chose that sentiment to give me encouragement and hope!!! THAT'S why you had the unexpected time today..... :)
