Watercolor on Stencil

Hello! Back with yet another card – I just finished making this, and couldn’t wait to post it! 😀

I followed this technique that I saw in one of the cards Wei Wei in this card. I absolutely loved the way the card looked, and I immediately proceeded to check my stash for a suitable stencil! 😀

Here’s what the thin watercolor paper I used looked like after using the stencil + watercolor twice. Really warped, but the image looks nice and abstract with a vague shape of the flower defined. Trust me, I would never have been able to do something like this without the stencil! I am so in love with this technique, I am gonna try some more! And did I mention how quick and easy it was – I was finished with the card within the hour, taking into account the fact that I heat dried the image between different uses of the stencil.

Enough praising! 😛 So, to keep the panel flat, I added lots of glue and adhered it directly to the card base. The stencil I used is Prima Daisies and the sentiment is from Penny Black Eloquence stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used a Copic Multi-liner for outlining.
