Shaped stencils are the perfect way to create one-of-a-kind embellishments. Gelatos, water, and a little blending can be used for a shimmery watercolor look.
ONE • Using a marker (like a Sharpie fine point), trace the stencil on cardstock. Cut out, leaving a small border around the shape. TWO • Color in the traced shape with gelatos. THREE • Add water with a paintbrush, smoothing, blending. Repeat twice, adding more color and blending, letting it dry in between. FOUR • Add glimmer with a glitter pen. (The gelatos I used had a bit of shimmer already). FIVE • Add to project with foam squares. Slight curling from the water is a win-win.
