The paper is washed with watercolours, I'd covered the stamped circles with masking fluid so I'd keep the circles pristine.. It's a useful teachnique, even if the fluid has a strong smell.
I sponged through the leaf stencil and used a stray bit of punched card with holes in it to sponge some circles. I used Distress Inks and tried to vary the depth of colour to give a watercolour effect.
Out came my trust black pen for some outlining- quite roughly done, I didn't want it to be pristine.
Rubbing off the masking fluid is very satisfying- kinds like peeling glue off your fingers when you were a kid (or a big kid, I still do it...).
Then I had to decide on my work for the year....I really should have gone for decisive, but seeing as I'm not, I chose KIND. tomorrow's post will have more about how I chose it.
This one is to go in my planner, so that I see it everyday. I've mounted it onto black card ready to be hole punched.
Thanks for looking!
