I love it when you can get a different look when using your stencils just by adding some colour with a paintbrush. That's what happened with this card; the flowers look like they have been stamped instead of stenciled.
I got out my stencil from STAMPlorations and tried to figure out how to keep all the stenciling to one side of my card front. I did that by placing the stencil on my paper and then masking areas off and moving the stencil around. That way, I could get the flowers exactly where I wanted them to be.
I used Shaded Lilac and Salty Ocean Distress inks to stencil my flowers and Peeled Paint for the stems.
I went back in with some ink that I rubbed onto my acrylic block and watercoloured the flower centers with a paint brush. To add additional interest, I took some white acrylic paint and splattered it over the flower centers. I was pleased at how they turned out.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Penny Black in the bottom corner.
