HLS April Sketch Challenge & Craft Stamper Take it Make it April Challenge

Happy Easter everyone - hope you are all enjoying the long Easter weekend and maybe indulging in a little chocolate???? lol

I'm joining in the HLS April Sketch challenge which is shown below:


and I'm also joining in with the Craft Stamper Take it Make it challenge.  The requirements are:

As you might remember, this year our challenge is alternating between 'Take A Stamp', and 'Take A Technique'....and this month our challenge is 'Take A Technique'!
Well, not so much a technique as a theme.... this month we want you to go all out with the colour!

April Challenge:
'Take A Technique: Colour'


and here is my card:


I used a water brush to wet an area of watercolour card and then used my Akashiya Sai Watercolor Brush Pens to add random colour.  This was then cut out using my Die-namics Banner dies - I chose the largest which was too long but as I wanted an oblong shape rather than a banner this was perfect.  I passed it through my BS and then turned the die around and placed it on the uncut end of watercolour card to get a long oblong shape.  The greeting is die cut using my Winnie & Walter "In a Word: Happy Cutaway" using black mirri card which was then popped up on d/s foam squares.  The "birthday" was stamped in VersaFine black and is from Waltzingmouse Stamps WMS IC3 set.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Happy crafting.
