I have another stencil tutorial today from the recent My Favorite Things order.
The stencil I am using today is the Wildflowers . It features four styles of flower silhouettes with two versions of each. These can be combined in a number of ways – turning the stencil over to make a mirror image, mixing the stems and leaves, using different types of flowers together – for a wide variety of looks.
The technique today uses Distress Markers.
Lay the stencil on watercolor paper. Use the brush end of a marker to outline the shape inside the stencil.
Continue with other colors, moving stencil as needed to complete an arrangement.
Use an aquabrush to draw the ink in from the outlines to the open spaces in the leaves and stems.
Add some detail lines inside the flowers.
Use the aquabrush to spread this color inside the flowers.
After trimming, I bordered my panel and combined it with a popped up stamped sentiment to create this card.
