I taped my stencil on to white cardstock and used a small stencil brush from Dreamweaver to apply several colors of Versafine Inks from Imagine Crafts. I used my Picasso tool to block out areas I didn't want to color as I went through each color. This is a wonderful tool, and if you stencil at all, you must add it to your collection.
Once I was happy with the colors and shading, I embossed the image with clear embossing powder. Then I watercolored my background. This was super simple, because the now-embossed image acts as a resist, so the watercolors don't damage the stenciled image.
Here you can see the nice sheen that the melted embossing powder gives to the stenciled image. And take a look at that beautiful shimmery ribbon! It's from May Arts, and wow! Do they have gorgeous ribbons! This one is sheer, and so pretty...even better looking in person!
