In my DT package this month I received a number of the new liquid watercolours together with some stencils. I thought I’d do a post about using the two together. This is something I hadn’t thought to do before but once I tried it, I couldn’t stop!
I began on my journey carefully choosing the Dream Big stencil as I thought I could use the watercolours through it easily. I used watercoloured paper and taped my stencil to the paper then on my glass mat I chose my colours and painted through the stencil after giving each section a wash with water.
I attempted a slight ombre shading going from dark blue to light blue. I like how it worked out, in particular on the BIG. I finished my card by adding nuvo drops to give a little texture and matted it on blue card.
Next, I used the Net Lace stencil on the corner of my watercolour card and used just 2 colours – pretty peony and eggplant through the stencil.
I wet the paper first with my brush then added the colours gtadually throught the stencil. The outcome reminded me of tie and dye. Once I was happy with the colours I added a spatter of Eggplant.
To finish the card I die cut a part of the watercoloured piece and adhered it onto a card blank with a strip of washi tape to the left and a die cut sentiment on the bottom right corner.
For my final creation, I remembered to take a photo of my desk so you can see how it looked before I peeled the stencil off.
I matted it onto black card and added a die cut sentiment in black to finish. I absolutely love rainbow colours so of my 3 creations this is definitely my favourite! How about you – which do you like best? I’d love to know in the comments below.
See you again soon!
