I started by cutting a piece of watercolour card that would completely cover my card front. Using Archival Black Ink I stamped the castle from Lawn Fawns - Critters Ever After in the centre of my card.

Using Distress Inks in Weatherd Wood, Peacock Feathers, Shabby Shutters and Victorian Velvet I coloured in the castle with the use of a water brush. 

Putting the colour around the edges of the image and using water to drag the colour in adds great shadow tones. 

Finally using Lawn Fawn - Milo's ABCs I then added the sentiment with the same black ink.

Thanks for popping by!
