Painted Stencil

Since watercolours are so "in", I have been playing with my stencils and paint to see what effects I get. I wasn't sure I'd be able to use them, as I thought it would give a really messy look. And it does! But that can be artsy too .... and when you stencil is covered with paint you can use it as a stamp too. Then, and only then, do you wash it!

So I have lots of pieces of stenciled and stencil-stamped pieces. This is one of the stencil-stamped pieces. Then I used Distress markers to ink up the butterfly stamp and gave a spritz of water before stamping.

My last card for Virginia's View Challenge : Watercolour challenge! Thanks Virginia - loved this challenge.
