Speedy Fox and Friends

     I saw a beautiful card that my dear friend Carol made for the Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge # 287, and had to give it a try. I love the way that MFP has been doing techniques as their weekly challenges!  I must say that I rather struggled with my background like Carol did, with the stencil forming more of wet blobs.  I may have salvaged it by using a bit of ink over my watercolor.

Here is what I used:

Base card- Textured Bazzill Pistachio Nut w/ watercolor panel
Stencil- Tattered Angels Sea Grass
Stamps- MFP Tropical Vacation
Ink- Smoky Slate SU!
Ribbon- Satin by ( no name)

     Hey, they say that art is a series of mistakes, so what the heck!  Thanks for stopping by.

Mary Anne,
I love your work with watercolors, after reading the sentiment this looks so dreamy and puts me right at the shore.
