Here’s my new favorite: the Mega Rose stencil!
I also used the Feathered Leaves stencil.
First I added color by using a large blending brush and ink. I held the stencil in place with some low tack tape.
Next, I used my much loved set of Woodless Watercolor Pencils to add details to my card.
I removed the stencil and drew right along the edges of the stenciled design of the flower. I used Shadow Creek, Fresh Lemon, and Yellow Ochre.
Then I used my Altenew watercolor brush to draw the color out a bit from the colored edge.
Below is another look at the finished card. The sentiment is heat embossed with Obsidian pigment ink and clear embossing powder, and is from the Fairy Tale Rose set. I added Antique Gold sequins to finish the card.
Here’s a quick look at another card using this watercolor technique. I used Coral Berry crisp dye ink. I also used the Ruby Red watercolor pencil. The sentiment is from the Leaf Canopy set; then I added Satin White sequins to finish the card. I hand drew the leaves using my Shadow Creek watercolor pencil.
Now for the fun part!
