More Stencils - and Colorblocking

Hello again! I am still having fun with the Online Stenciled Class I have been taking - here is my "homework" for day 2!

I was inspired by the technique from Laura Bassen using watercolors with a stencil, only I added my own little twist. I first stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder the Tea Time Pattern background from Unity Stamps on my watercolor paper. As I used the watercolors over my MFT stencil, those parts resisted the watercolor - I kind of like the different effect it gave:

I am also linking this up to CAS-ual Friday's Color Block Challenge:

I didn't quite get the texture of my watercolors thin enough, so after I was done, I dabbled a bit more water on them so they softened up a little to give it more of a watercolor effect.

My little typewriter and sentiment came from Unity Stamps February 2013 KOTM. I colored it a bit with Copics, added some Wink of Stella (that you really can't see at all in these pictures!), then stamped my sentiment with MFT ink.

Mounted it on a white circle cut with my Lil' Inker's Stitched circle dies, and finished off with a few enamel dots.

I feel like this didn't come out exactly like I pictured, but it's okay anyway! Having SOOO much fun playing with my stencils! Off to watch today's videos and hopefully play with today's homework as well! Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!!!
