Lawnscaping Challenge #105- Watercolors


Happy Monday, it's the beginning of the month so that means there is a new Lawnscaping Challenge!
The challenge is to create a project using watercolors. Watercoloring is such a fun technique. I love layering colors on top of each other to create depth. I used a polka dot stencil on my watercolored background. I placed the stencil on top of my background, and sprayed water on it to lift and remove some of the paint. I did mask the hamster and the wheel to ensure that it wouldn't remove any of the colors. I absolutely love the little hamster from the "Wheelie Like You" stamp set, it is just the cutest stamp set ever!
