Watercolor Cards with Shanna

Hello to you all today. Shanna here with a fun share. I love making cards that are fun and simple. Which is exactly what I have here today.

I love this watercolor technique and thought I would share it with you.

First step is to pick your stencil and I pounced my ink pads on the the stencil.

Then I spritzed the stencil with water.

Then I put my stencil on my watercolor paper, and with a paper towel I pressed the stencil into the paper.

Then I let it dry. Doesn’t that look great?

For my card here I used the stencil Stepping Stones TCW506S with the watercolor technique. I used some different colors of red and pink Distress Ink.

Once that was dry I used the stencil Mini Word Association TCW527S with some black acrylic paint to sponge in Happy.

The second card I used the stencil Mini Kaleidoscope TCW347S for the background and some blue shades of Distress Ink.

Then I thought it would be nice to have something underneath my stamped image. I got this idea to trace out the stencil Accented Star TCW2055 and cut it out. Then I used some Distress Ink with the stencil Mini Believe Script TCW541S on top of the star.

Once again, I used the stencil Mini Word Association TCW527S again with black acrylic paint to sponge in Dream. These cards are great to give to anyone.
