January 2023 Challenge – Watercolor Stencil

Hello, all and welcome back.

This is my card for Altenew’s January 2023 Challenge. I also incorporated a technique I learned in one of my classes for my final level for the AECP. I wanted to make an additional card with my stencil and watercolors, which is a technique I learned during a class, but I have already exceeded the amount of cards needed for that particular class/post. So, this is a great opportunity to combine both projects. 😊

A Closer Look

I will be using the image below as my inspiration, but, as I noted, I’m also using a technique I learned during one of my classes in the AECP.

Supplies

  • Altenew Sweet Spring Stencil
  • Altenew Buttercream Dye Ink
  • Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers – Warm Sunshine, Rubellite, Moss
  • Altenew Versatile Vases – Sentiment with Altenew Obsidian Ink
  • Strathmore Hot Press Watercolor Paper
  • Altenew Satin White Sequins

The Card

You can see the different shades of pink on the panel. The roses in a light pink, and the smaller flowers in a darker pink. I used Rubellite watercolor brush marker for all the flowers, but I used more or less pigment to get the different shades. What I really like about using a die ink before adding the watercolor is how it changes the hue of the original color.

Color Difference

I used wet-on-dry for most of the image, and used some wet-on-wet for the green leaves. I found the wet on dry works best with stencils and then coming back with more pigment, if needed.
