Hi everyone. Here's another watercoloured card ... this one was sent to my friend Julia. She has now received the card, so I'm sharing it with you. :) I think I'm about half way done in posting the twelve thank you cards that I sent to friends, so lots more to come. :) Hope you're not sick of seeing watercolouring ...
Here's a different way to use stencils. I had this metal stencil that I bought years ago and don't think it's ever been used. I traced the design onto watercolor paper in light pencil; then took a permanent marker to draw in the flowers, joining up the petals so there was no break between them (the stencil has gaps). I erased the light pencil markings, watercoloured the flowers and splattered the background. I then fussy-cut along the bottom of the image and mounted the panel onto a white card base.
Here's the stencil I used ...
