Using Stencils with Distress Watercolor Pencils - Deco Feather stencil and flower design

It's my turn to post over at the Country View Craft Challenge on FaceBook and I have chosen the theme of 'Stencils'. There are just so many ways they can be utilised and in my latest workshops at CVC Headquarters I was teaching about the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Pencils and I focussed quite a lot on monoprinting.

On my card the larger panel background was made using the Nordic stencil and the wet pencils on the dry stencil technique - spritz lightly with water and monoprint onto the substrate - in this case mixed media paper.  

The small panel using mini deco leaf stencil in various greens was again using wet to dry ie wet DWP paint to dry stencil. 

The die-cut flowers were washed with clean water and dribbles of DWP puddles added in with a small brush. 

To put the panel together I added some snippets....

....some inked mummy cloth and a Tim stamped sentiment.
