Stencil Play

Here is another card I made last week and forgot to share.

The photo is not very good as it was bright sunshine, so I took it in the shade.  I used a stencil from STAMPlorations and began by inking the stencil with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink Refill & Golden High Flow Acrylic  and spritzing. Then I lay the paper over the stencil and let it soak in. Once dry, I placed the stencil back over the panel and applied Picked Raspberry and Ripe Persimon with a sponge and then used a wet brush to make it look more 'watercolour-y':) These colours are sooo vibrant!
 I'm entering this in HLS Watercolour Challenge Optional Twist - Stencil.

ETA:- I just remembered I meant to enter this in the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge and the STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge.
