Happy Saturday! I've got a fun stencil + watercolor technique for you today that features a beautiful little vellum window over the top of the background as to still showcase the background behind. I'm using the Poppy Bouquet Stencil with Distress Oxide Ink and Karin Brushmarker Pro Markers to create my own custom background! Let's get started!

To create the background the Poppy Bouquet Stencil was temporarily adhered to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel of Canson Watercolor Cardstock with Pixie Spray. Antique Linen Distress Oxide Spray was applied with a blending brush and the stencil removed.
Karin Brushmarker Pro Markers in 051 Orange Red, 213 Cocoa, and 281 Olive Green were used with a Medium Water Brush Pen to paint over the stenciled design! I love how this gives a watercolored stenciled look so quickly and easily!
The background was die cut with a Basic Rectangles Die and then adhered to a white side fold card base. The frame die cut with an A2 Thin Frames Die and adhered over the background to give it an elegant "framed up" look.
A vellum rectangle was die cut from vellum using a smaller Basic Rectangles Die. An A2 Thin Frame was die cut from gold mirror cardstock and adhered over the top. Not only does this give an elegant look but it's a great place to hide adhesive when adhering to the background panel.
Alphabet letters from the Rounded Alphabet Small Dies were die cut from gold mirror cardstock and adhered to the vellum rectangle to spell the word, "thanks".
A greeting from the Window Frames Stamp Set was stamped on smooth white cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder before being die cut with a Nested Banners Die. The banner was adhered with foam adhesive below the die cut greeting.
A Trinity Stamps Coffee Bean Heart was adhered below the banner.
