Today Lisa has challenged us to use water on our cards in some way. I was inspired to go watch Dina's video on Watercolor Powders. I finally broke down and bought them about a year and a half ago, but haven't really figured out how to work them yet. Now I have lots of ideas, but this stencil technique always fascinated me. I was sure I was going to make a big mess with water seeping under my stencil, but I didn't! I think both prints came out awesome and I can't decide which one I like better. Maybe the one on the right. With my tropical jungle background done, I went looking for a tropical jungle stamp and came up with these Lawn Fawn monkeys. Monkeys creep me out, so you don't see a lot of monkeys in my gallery. These guys are cute enough to get a pass.

These cards are both so cute!! Our grandson Tom used to be called "monkey boy", so I have monkey stamps! I'm sure you will find more uses for them. the bg's of the cards are wonderful, and I like the one on the right the best too.

These cards remind of that toy where there was a barrel full of monkeys, that you can connect the tail like this. These cards are so cute!!!

I prefer the right one too, but I think they are both beautiful. Wait for a rainy day and spend time playing - I love my Brushos and there are so many things to do. And, if you use ribbon much, seam-binding is super for mopping up the leftovers . A delightful pair of cards.
