Watercoloured Stencils

It was another icky showery day, with a few good thunder showers thrown in for good measure, so it was a good day to get crafty ;)

I spotted this card over in Joanne's gallery, this week's featured stamper at Splitcoast.  I couldn't find my hexagon stamp, so used a stencil and just puddled in some watercolours, and then added a few splatters for good measure.  I LOVE how it turned out! I used some of my old bees from There She Goes - coloured with watercolour pencils, glitter added to their wings, and then all popped up on dimensionals.  Little gold flower gems from stash, more oldies!

I loved my bee card so much, I had another go with my brick stencil.  It's so quick and easy, reckon I'll be using this technique again!
This time I've used my little LOTV bunny - again coloured with watercolour pencils, clear gloss added to the balloons and sparkle to the cupcake icing.

I love how you have used your stencils on both of these cards. Makes for a great background and doesn't take away from the image. They are both so adorable. Thanks for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday.
