This was super fun to make. Dina's tutorial is so easy to follow! I taped down my stencil and watercolor paper with washi tape, then misted and scraped my watercolor pencil on the sandpaper. I used my old set of Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils, and chose three colors (can you see the faint sun in the upper left corner with yellow?).
When it was dry (I dried inbetween color layers as Dina suggests), I added the front panel with the adorable giraffe and foliage (Paper Smooches) and a retired sentiment by There She Goes. My giraffe is colored with a Memento marker.
No safari greens for this "loves pink" girl! I have several leaf stencils, but decided to do something a little more abstract to make the technique result more fun.
I hope you will play along with the TLC this week!
Thanks for looking!

That big eyed giraffe is adorable and your bg turned out great! ( I lived in your world for a few hours years ago when my Dr injected some kind of dye in my eyes for pic of the nerves - EVERYTHING was shades of neon pink for several hours - I saw pink birds sitting in pink trees and lots of pink people dressed in all pink clothes)
