Serene Silhouettes Class Card #4

Here's the final card from my recent Serene Silhouettes class.
For this card, the Basic Black matting was run through the Fancy Fan embossing folder although it is difficult to see in this card.  I thought that the shape of the folder matched well with the shape on these trees.
The card is made with Not Quite Navy cardstock and the Basic Gray striped paper at the bottom is from the Neutrals Pattern Pack.  The striped ribbon is from the Holiday catalog and the sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  The punches used are the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch for the Not Quite Navy strip and the Curly Label for the sentiment.
The image was made by coloring the image using Basic Gray and Not Quite Navy markers.  We then used water in the Stampin' Spritzer and made two quick spritzes to give the image a watercolor look.  If you try this, let the water sit on the stamp for a few seconds before stamping.  The more water and/or the longer you wait before stamping will give your image more of a watercolor effect.
Have fun trying this technique and let me know how you do!
