water coloring with a stencil

It's May already. How did that happen??

I was inspired by the lovely spring weather we're having to make something light and playful. I water colored this flower using a stencil I have. 

 It's one of those stencils found near the painting section of the crafts. Notice the price tag of $1.99. Can't beat that!

So I just held the stencil firmly with one hand and painted with the other onto water color paper. I didn't even use real water color either. I cheated and used my distress inks, a craft mat, and water brush.

I finished with a fun stamp from Unity and was done! 
Nice and flat and totally mailable.
