Krafty Saturday!

Good Morning!
Hope you are going to get krafty this weekend!  There is a brand new Saturday Challenge up at Kraftin' Kimmie and this week it is all about twine!

So this turned out to be a happy accident! I wanted to play with stencils and practice layering them, as is done in mixed media.The background was sponged, then I outlined the tree branch/bird image and watercolored it very loosely, using my Derwent watercolor pencils.
  It really did not turn out as intended, but I realized that the scene I ended up with perfectly complimented this sweet image from Best Fur-iends that I had already colored up.  I fussy cut the image out, drew a black line around the background and added a couple of mats.  Lastly, I added some of my most favorite Hempitque twine. 
Come join us for some Krafty fun and if you link up your creation, you are in the running for a Krafty prize!
