Recently I was organizing my stencils and came across this stencil, Poinsettia Background from Honey Bee stamps, which I forgot I had.
I wanted to join in with the CAS Watercolour Challenge this month, and I thought this would be a nice stencil to use for a watercolour design.
I like to use my Make Art Stay-tion when I stencil for several reasons. I tape my piece of watercolour paper (Arches cold press) down on the backside so the card stock will not move. I then lay the stencil over the card stock and use the magnets to hold it in place, and away I go.
I am doing something a bit different for my watercolour piece. I am using matte embossing paste, which I apply with my palette knife. I am sure the smooth out the paste before the next step., which is to sprinkle with Fushcia Color Burst powder, activating with spritzing of water.
With my watercolour brush I went over the piece moving the colour, then covered it with a piece of paper towel to soak up the excess and set it aside to dry.
In the mean time I foiled the “falalalalalaaa” sentiment using red foil. The pink foil would not work for the Monochromatic look. I shadowed the foil die with a die cut piece of dark red card stock.
I then went over the berry parts of the stencil with my Midas Touch Shimmering Pen, it looks very pretty IRL.
I attached the piece to my white card base, then attached the sentiment using foam squares to finish. A very easy card.
I hope this is okay for the watercolour challenge, which I am sure they will let me know.
