I have a new stencil to introduce to you today - my messy rainbows stencil is great for bright and bold backgrounds. When I used it in conjunction with some green and blue colour bursts it made me think of waves:
I sprinkled colour bursts over the stencil, spritzed with water and blotted quickly. I did that a few times to get the depth of colour that I wanted without too much 'bleed'. Once dry, I die cut a square out of the centre of the panel to create a frame and added the cute whale and sentiment from Mama Elephant. I shall link this up at Happy Little Stampers July Watercolour Challenge which is Anything Goes (without the optional twist of birthdays). I shall also join in at AAA Cards (just in time) where we are using a frame on our designs.
I used the central panel as a background for this fab porthole die from MFT and the same Mama Elephant set. The porthole is layered up several times to create a bit of dimension. I shall link this up at the July CAS challenge at Happy Little Stampers where the theme is Animals.
Here is the stencil that is in my Folksy shop:
Thanks for stopping by :)
