Watercolour Grunge

I'm taking part in an online watercolour class at the moment, and one of the techniques on day 1 was using stencils with watercolours. This was my second attempt and it ended up looking more grungy than I intended, but as I needed to make a card for a teenage boy that was a happy accident! I had intended the finished card to be a little more CAS than it is, but a not-so-happy accident was getting some stray black ink where I didn't want it, so I had to cover that up with grunge stamps.

My first attempt had turned out too pale, so this time I dug out my Whispers brush markers which I haven't used for a couple of years as it belatedly occurred to me that they could be used for watercolouring, and they worked really well. 

Stencil: Mini Punchinella by Balzer Designs
Ink: Hero Arts
Stamps: Greetings - Woodware Large & Small, guitar & grunge - Inspired by Stamping
Backing paper: Bazzill

  1. This is super Helen. My first attempt didn't turn out as the demo suggested it should but I thought it was a reasonable effect so I left it at that!
    Starting late I don't seem to know which class to try out first!


Thank you for taking the time to comment, it's much appreciated!
