Stencils are so amazingly versatile, but one medium that I have never really gotten good results with is watercolor. I wanted to find a way to make both stencils and watercolor coexist and make some beautiful backgrounds for my cards. What I came up with is super simple, cheap and works beautifully!! You can watch the full video tutorial down below for 2 different ways to use your watercolor mediums and stencils together!!
This is such a fun technique, but it does take a bit of time. And it’s not a technique you can really rush. But I promise the results are so worth it!
I showed just a few ways to really utilize this technique, but there are so many creative ways to take it even further! Not to mention, it is completely customizable! Use different stencils, different watercolors, different color combinations! It really is up to you how far you want to take it!
I hope you all enjoyed this technique and if you do try it, be sure to tag me so I can see too!! If you are interested in the exact supplies I used on my cards today, you will find them all linked down below!
