Framelits as Stencils ~ Water Color techniques

Hi everyone!  Today I wanted to show you some fun cards that I made using a Framelit as a stencil. 
I started by choosing a Framelit and tracing it with a thin Sharpie marker.  You need to use a Sharpie or other water proof marker so that the outline doesn't bleed when you start to paint.  I made a video showing how to overlay the colors with an Aqua Painter in a way that still allows you to see the different shades without the colors becoming muddy or bleeding too much. 

In this version, rather than painting the hearts with a solid color, I used markers to add patterns to the hearts, then used the Aqua Painter on the marker areas to intentionally bleed the colors and patterns. There is a quick video on how to do that. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that you enjoyed today's projects.  I would love to be your demonstrator and help you with any of your stamping questions.
