Sunday Postcard Art - Turquoise

This week's theme at Sunday Postcard Art is turquoise. I love turquoise and this was a quick one to make. A thin layer of soft turquoise acrylic was first put down and allowed to dry. Buttercream acrylic was pounced on using a paint brush. Ribbon and a doily were used to stencil some background interest. The sentiment is by Dawn Houser and the image came from one of my purchased collections. The coral color is from the Sweet Dreams Encore pad.

I like the art and especially appreciate your desriptive words re: painting techniques. As a non painter, words like "pounce" help me see how you got that effect.
