A Great Day For A Bike Ride

For Lisa's Blogger Challenge, Stencil It!




I smooshed various distress inks on the back of the stencil and lightly sprayed with water .... pressing it down on water color paper.  I added some light blue distress ink between the trees with a brush.  I was quite surprised how well the trees came out.  The silhouette images were stamped in black archival and stand out well in front of the background.

Until the next challenge.....

I like this, Gerrie! The trees came out nice, they look like birch trees to me. The entire composition of silhouettes and the trees and colors blend nicely together.

I love how you created your background, Gerrie. I will definitely try this new-to-me technique. That is one adorable stamp! Perfect composition here.
