Color Thow Down Challenge

A new challenge woohoo, this looks like fun.Totally inspired by the teams efforts at Color Throw Down  #385 I got out my water colour paper and a stencil (Memory Box 'Texture Wave') some dye inks (Impress Teal and Soft Aqua) and gold drawing ink...first effort hit the bin, second effort got turned over and I used the other side before I was happy with the result. Next step to add some depth with a stamp (Designs by Ryn 'Rising Bubbles') in the aqua then the teal...not happy so a a quick spritz with water made it all run and in my mind it got a dreamy look. I wanted an image to centre it all so rummaging through my vintage stamp collection I found 'Bruce' he is from 'Mostly Animals' (now defunct). I so wish I had more of this companies stamps such high quality and such lovable characters. The sentiment is from Hampton Art Stamps-'Sweet Dreams' I gave it a bit of a rubberectomy and removed the sweet.
