I was looking through my stencils for a chevron stencil the other day - and although I didn't find it - I did find this beautiful rainbow stencil from Stencil Girls and knew it would be perfect for the May CAS Watercolor card challenge!
It's a large stencil - so this card is 6"x6" and will probably get hand delivered unless I can find an envelope to fit it in! I've had the stencil for a while but have not used it yet - so I was glad to get it out!
I laid my stencil over a piece of watercolor paper and then sprinkled (in rainbow color order!) over the stencil with Brushos in Scarlet, Orange, Yellow, Leaf Green, Turquoise and Purple. Then I spritzed over the stencil with water to activate the colors. The more you spritz, the more they blend - so I stopped spritzing when I had the look I wanted and carefully removed the stencil. The stencil is designed with these drippy ends - the perfect look for my watercolor rainbow!
The sentiment is from Ways to Say: Get Well Soon by PTI. This card would work for someone who is ill or someone going through a rough patch.
I don't use watercolor techniques too often - so I like to try and participate in the CAS Watercolor challenge to inspire me to do it more! And there's always lots of inspiration from the Design Team!
