Playing with watercolours

Not a lot of scrapping happening here, but I've been playing around with my old stash of Twinkling H2O watercolours and seeing how they work with stencils. Probably my poor technique, but I ended up with lots of blobs and probably too much water on the brush, and a big mess!

These were the most successful attempts:

Watercolour paper + Twinkling H2O (Majestic Blue) + TCW Mini Art Deco Leaves stencil + paint brush:

There was quite a bit of leakage but it doesn't look too bad... I have an idea forming about what kind of project to make this into.

Smooth white cardstock + paint-stained stencil lifted from previous page:

Still a bit of smudging, but I was reasonably happy with this.  I don't have a Gelli plate or brayer, so it was all done with my fingers!  I decided to use this one as a simple background for a layout:

I'm submitting my layout at Studio Calico for the National Scrapbook Day challenge ~ use watercolours.
