Dreamcatcher on blue.

Hi everyone, I hope you had a relaxing Mother's Day if you were celebrating it.
I had a lovely day just pottering around, even had a nanna nap!

A friend asked me to make a birthday card with feathers on it, so I'm hoping she likes dreamcatchers.
I borrowed this Cheery Lynn die from my sister ages ago and thought I'd better use it before she wants it back! 
I enlarged the lacy circle with a border diecut from 2 Spellbinders dies. It made the image just that bit bigger which is what I wanted. I used distress inks to colour the white feathers and also to give a bluish tinge to the silver diecuts.

The background is painted with Kuretake Gansai watercolor paints in a few shades of blue, with a touch of Finetec silver watercolour paint for shimmer.

I'm linking up to a few challenges:

At Addicted to Stamps & More it's anything goes.

At Happy Little Stampers watercolour, I'm choosing the anything goes option.

I'm also adding another entry to Seize the Birthday, going with the no toppings option this time.

Supplies: Kuretake Gansai and Finetec watercolour paints; Cheery Lynn dreamcatcher die; distress inks; silver card; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

Your background is beautiful with that touch of silver. The dream catcher die is really authentic and adding a circle over it was very ingenius to make it bigger. The feathers look so real...the dream catcher looks perfect.

That background is the most gorgeous shade of blue Cathy and the shimmer is so pretty. The dreamcatcher has made a beautiful centrepiece too. A fabulous card! x
