Mixed Media Card

**Please visit My 1st Anniversary Giveway, Recipe Challenge and Card Challenge too, thanks!!" 

 
I used watercolor paper to create these cards.
 
  

 
Can someone please tell me how to call this paper? *embarrased* It's a kind of heavy tissue paper use to wrap flowers. A mulberry paper? I don't know, I'm not sure...Anyways, I used this paper to create this "Happy Bee Day" card.
 
 
Prepare your sheet.
 
 
Lay a mask/stencil on top.
 Mist with your favorite color spray ink.
 Let it dry completely.
 
  • watercolor paper - Michaels
  • stencil - TCW Hexagons
  • string - American Crafts
  • "Happy" - RAK from Laurie - Jenni Bowlin
  • "bee" - altered BG chipboard letters. Just painted it with black and straw color from Ceramcoat by Delta
  • "day" - American Crafts
  • spray ink - Dylusions , cut grass color
  • bee - cuttings from an old birthday card
 
 
 
 
Lay a mask/stencil on top.
I used tape to keep the stencil in place.
 
 
Apply ink.
 
 
For paint splatter, I mixed  paint with a little amount of water .
 Mix to get the water down consistency.
 
 
Splatter the paint down, tap your brush freely.
Let it dry completely.
