Seize the Birthday Challenge - Favorite Technique

Now this is a fabulous challenge!
 
I have a few "favorite techniques", so for this challenge I chose water coloring with a graphic feel. 

I used tape to make the "squares", and then laid down spots of color and sprayed with water for a little soft blending.  I wanted the colors to stay separated.

I cut the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Feather Die out of the panel [so the paint would "line up"].  I cut the Simon Says Etched Delicate Frond Die, and glued it down first, and then popped up the feather, matching the paint up.  I like this faux inlaid look.

Okay, your turn!  Come on over to Seize the Birthday Challenge and play along.  While the twist of your favorite technique is optional, being a birthday is not.


Thanks for stopping by~
