TMS262 and SYS2 Bonus Day

For today's card I have combined TMS 262 with a technique that was featured during the Bonus Day of the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class, namely adding splashes of watercolour in a free form where you intend to stamp and then stamp the image on top.

Materials used:
Letraset Aquamarkers
Tim Holz watercolour cardstock
Neenah Desert Storm cardstock
PP Chanteuse Collection by Kaisercraft
Image by Imaginisce (Snag'em stamps Chick)
You die by Simon Says Stamp
Sentiment stamp by Stampendous (Birthday Wish assortment) - I masked the 'you' before stamping
Archival black ink
Sequins - large ones from Jenni Bowlin; small ones from a local bargain store
Black glitter embossing powder

Tuesday Morning Sketches - #262 + watercolouring
I love Promarkers - #232 Anything goes with Letraset markers
Seize the Birthday - Anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's PP challenge - always Anything goes with PP
