I cut a piece of the water color paper with paints on it to measure 5" by 7", this will fit on the front of a basic white card stock blank card. Then I placed the Vine stencil on top and scraped some white gesso through the stencil and carefully lifted it up so it wouldn't smear.
Then I glued the entire panel with a strong adhesive, I used Beacon 3-in-1, to adhere the panel to the blank white card.
I applied black permanent ink all around the edges to distress the card a little and it is done.
Now I feel good about this. I not only used my work "master board" paper but also my stencils and a discarded ATC. When you are doing your art don't hesitate to just make what you love, enjoy the process. If it doesn't work out you can set it aside and find a use for it later. Stencils and gesso have a way of tying things together.
Thanks for stopping by today, I'll do another short stencil tutorial next Tuesday. I hope to see you then.
