February Calendar Challenge

Good evening, how are you all today?  I was hoping to have this done sooner but earlier my ears popped sending me into a dizzy frenzy.  Think this ears, nose and throat problems after my cold 3 weeks ago is turning into an infection, grrrrrr I don't like doctors lol.  Anyway onto what I am sharing this evening, over on Darcy's Blog she started a calendar challenge in January and this month we had to use either bubble wrap or cling film technique, leave part of the picture and use corrugated card board.  I used bubble wrap and cling film on mine so I am super happy.  All month I wasn't too sure what to do, I wanted my month to have hearts on it but my page was tornado's (yes I love weather but think I should have bought a calendar with a bit more colour!!!).  In the end I thought of rain seems it's been rainy through the week.  As always I have done a step by step, plus a test with stabilo pencil that I now use all the time.
I would also like to join this entry with the following challenges -
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
Artistic Stamper Challenge - LOVE

This is the page for February to alter.

I am loving this, I thought it was a fluke that January went well but in the end
February looks just as cool.  It certainly tests you though, but I am loving it.

And now for the step by step ...........................................

I left it for around 15hours but it was still wet and managed to rip some of the sides,
which I covered up with a heart later on, I also used tape on the other side.

A little test for you, I love my Stabilo All pencil but wanted it water proof,
so I use Golden airbrush medium in a water brush, here you can see I tested it with
going over it once, twice and three times.  The results next pic.

Non of them bleed.  I do dry them with my heat gun before adding water.
I have been using this way for about a month now and it really works :-)

Clear UTEE at top, then add colours, then hold up and let it drip.

Right I better be off, want to watch CSI before going to bed lol.  Thank you so much for visiting.
Happy ART :-)
