It's Mansi on the blog, again, today with a very simple design using Crafty Meraki's Special Edition Watercolor Kit.
I am using my favorite distress ink reinkers again today in combination with a stencil included in the kit. This is a very simple, fast and effective way to create a unique card or journal page. The reinkers are so intense that you don't need a whole lot of them -- a little goes a long way.
First, I placed my watercolor paper on a magnetic surface and placed the Heffy Doodle stencil on top. I like to place magnets on top to hold the stencil in place but if you're more comfortable using repositionable adhesive then you can use that instead. The basic idea is that the stencil not move while applying inks through the stencil.
I then used my waterbrush to pick up inks from the palette and spread the colors one by one through the stencil. As I applied the colors, some of them seeped through the stencil while others didn't, making for a very cool effect.
The colors also blended with each other making for new shades of green and purple.
I dabbed some of the excess water before lifting off the stencil, added a sentiment strip (also included in the kit) and some butterfly sequins for a bit of glitz.
If you're making a card you can just adhere this watercolor panel to your cardbase and it'll make for a unique, colorful creation.
Hope you liked this quick and easy technique and I'll see y'all next time!
