MIXED MEDIA THANK YOU NOTE CARDS

Hello again hope you are all well.  I needed a few thank you cards so I made these 3.  I used a stencil with texture paste for the background and used my pearlescent watercolours to paint over, I used Black ink spray and did some splatters on the background too.  I had the Butterfly embellishments in my stash and I staped a sentiment using Black Versafine Ink and I put clear embossing powder over the top to give a nice sheen.. I will leave a link below to my process video if you have time to take a look.
