Let's get right to STENCILS!
 Today's project was created with labor of LOVE.
It's definitely not for mass producing....

Cube Builder Stencil

If you are ever in the mood for water-coloring and cube-building.  beautiful mess

  This is it.
I took the joy 😊/painπŸ˜’ (depends how you look at the process!!) to watercolor each diamond. 
Then you flip the stencil over and complete watercoloring the other blocks! 

beautiful mess #2

On word of caution: use as little water as possible, so the water would not overflow the stencil.
I know the sentiment says "make a beautiful mess today!" 

BUT, I still like a "controlled" mess as I have a bit of OCD...just slightly! In order to create a controlled mess, I used Splatter Stencil with the Embellishment Mousse (see links below).

beautiful mess #3
 As you can see, my cubes are not perfect, but that is kind of the point...striving for something original and creative. That is what I do. I also added DMC strings and stapled it! Done!
 Thanks so much for stopping by! See you next Sunday!

Pretty and colorful. thanks for the tip on water so it is a controlled mess.

In my 'eye' this card is colorful and fun. I wonder what watercolor paper you used as it's so very white. I think the white sets off the colors beautifully. The 'string' adds just the touch.
