 We have a challenge from Sharon this week on The Daring Cardmakers
 Sharon says:
"I'd like to see a watercolour style to your cards.  It doesn't have to be watercolour paints, you can create the effect with anything you like - papers with a watercolour style, distress inks, watercolour markers, Twinkling H2O's, Gelato's, etc.  The list is endless!"
I made a watercolour background using Gelatos for the colours with a gorgeous stencil inked over the top 
I used:
White card blank
Black Bazzill card
Watercolour card
Stencil Multi Birds of a Feather  Crafter's Workshop 
Colorbox black ink
Turquoise satin ribbon
Silver gems in various sizes
EK Success border punch

 I was really pleased at how the colours in the background worked and how the birdcage silhouettes look as though you're looking out at the sun going down on the sea - it was all a bit of a happy accident to be honest!

Thanks for visiting - please pop over and visit The Daring Cardmakers Blog to see the beautiful cards the DT have made this week
