Stencils & Moisture-Reactive Watercolor

Happy Saturday, all! I know I usually don’t post on Saturday’s, but this week has been crazy! I’ve been running one day behind on most everything. LOL!

Today I have a card for you that includes a way for you to use stencils with water-reactive mediums like Peerless Watercolor or Distress Inks. Basically anything that will reactive with water after it’s already dry.

I’ve been trying to figure out a way to use stencils and water for a while and then I thought about baby wipes. They’re just wet enough to reactive the Peerless Watercolors, but offer enough control so that water doesn’t seep under the edges of the stencil. I use Kirkland brand baby wipes (available at Costco, too) for this, but you could definitely use any other brand of baby wipes. I just like the Kirkland ones because they don’t leave fuzzies on my stamps (Thanks for the tip, Jennifer!) :)

So that’s where this card started. I just wanted to play a bit with a watercolor background and a stencil. The stencil I used is the Repeated Hearts stencil from Simon Says Stamp. :)

I didn’t want to cover up the background pattern I created, so I used minimal elements on the card to finished it. I used the “thanks” stamp from Mama Elephant’s Heartfelt Wishes stamp set and the coordinating die. And then I stamped the remainder of the greeting.

Hope you enjoy the video!
