Hi Friends! I decided to have some fun and join in the Watercolor class put on by Jennifer McGuire and Friends :-). I've been dabbling in watercolors for a few months and love it! Years ago I water colored a lot and had forgotten how much fun it is! So I decided to try and use a stencil as a stamp. I laid down a stencil and took some Versa mark and 1st swiped it across the stencil to get a good coat on the stencil and then pounced it into the stencil as best as I could. I embossed the watercolor paper with Hero Arts White. The stencil is from Tim Holtz and I believe it's called speckles. I then water colored over the embossing with some bright distressed ink and colored in a piece about 6x12. After that was dry I cut out the balloons with Simon Says balloon dies. I really love the texture that the balloons have! The sentiment is from Winnie and Walter....my favorite big words stamp set called "The big and the Bold"!
For anyone loving the water coloring, I recommend this class! It's so fun! Thanks for stopping by! Char
