Hello friends. Lexi Daly is hosting this weeks Make it Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink, and has a great video on how to make stencils using your dies and then watercoloring over them. Lexi did share the importance of making sure that the underside of your stencil is adhered firmly to your cardstock before watercoloring, and I thought I did that using a two way glue pen, but obviously not! Oh well, only my "c" in the word "Congrats" didn't come out so clear, but I think you can still make out the word pretty well. Take a look:
I probably used a bit too much water too, and that seeped under the stencil and caused the watercolor to bleed through. Anyway, it is what it is! I used the balloon stamp from Birthday Style, and Wonderful Words: Congrats is the die I used for my stencil. Summer Sunrise, Spring Rain, & Limeade Ice were my ink colors. A little bit of bakers twine and a few sequins finished this quick and easy card. My brother in law turns 62 and retires next week, so this will be the card I send him.
You can check out Lexi's video and great cards, and all the info to play along with this challenge right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
