Back in the craft room

It feels like forever since I have crafted, I seem to spend more time organising and arranging and cleaning up instead of creating.  I decided to play with the clear challenge at SSS and this card morphed from there.  I used matte gel medium with a dirty stencil..the paint made the medium discoloured but I actually like how it looks.   I started with watercolour as my card base as I really want to start using my water colour mediums, be it inktense, stains, pencils, gelattos etc.   I ended up using stains on this card, which kept it quite muted and soft.
