The Paper Players #304

Hi there!

It's time for my favorite challenge of the month at The paper players... Clean & Simple time , and Jaydee is our hostess, who chose the topic/medium... watercolor!


                                                              


My card:


watercolored and stenciled card

A closer look:

watercolored and stenciled card

I used a stencil and watercolor to create my card. Remember when you stencil with watercolor, you need to restrict the amount of water, to avoid color bleeding through the stencil.

The sentiment is from Uniko studio (Flower Power#1)

I am adding my link to the following challenges:

Uniko studio  ~ Flowers.

Less is more ~ Repetition ( repeated stenciled rose, stamped sentiment and added pearls).

Freshly made sketches ~ Layout.


         We'd love you to display our banner


Thanks for visiting me today!

Hope to see you join us at The Paper Players!

Hugs
Hannelie

Elegant, classy and beautifully done - what a fab LIM entry! Love the colours you've used for the watercolouring.

So soft and soothing...goes perfectly with the sentiment.

Loving these roses, Hannelie. I can image watercolouring through a stencil isn't easy at all! Great idea to create the ribbon style sentiment strip too.
Thanks for sharing with us.

Beautiful! Love the stencil water coloring....fun technique!

Rose said...

Love the watercoloured stencil look! You've done well to keep the edges crisp & not bleed under the stencil. I can't quite conquer that even with less water.

Beautiful card Hannelie, the watercolouring is perfect and looking at the card it looks like it is die cut.

Stunning! Love how the flowers have an almost 3D appearance. Thanks for playing at Uniko.

Colleen Begley said...

Very pretty. I thought this was done with a stencil when I first looked and sure enough. Not easy with water colors!

Karren said...

Beautiful job watercoloring through a stencil! And the image you've chosen is gorgeous! So happy to see you at FMS.

Bajalizzy said...

you definitely make it look like you used more water than you did using a stencil - wow - at first it looked like you cut out those shapes and the watercolour was on a layer below.

Geri said...

Don't you just love the soft look that water coloring creates? More so when paired with some divinely textured paper!

Joanne James said...

Gorgeous Hannelie - there is a real technique to watercolouring with a stencil and you most certainly have nailed it!

LeAnne said...

One word says it all.....GORGEOUS!
