Innocence in Watercolour

I enjoyed playing with the new Innocence stamps designed by Dee Fitzsimmons for Claritystamp.  This is the first character to get matching texture stamps for backgrounds.  They can be seen today at 9am and 1pm on Hochanda.  Here is my first sample.
Add the New Design Stencil Club Lattice stencil to a piece of 7” x 7” Clarity stencil card using masking tape to create a hinge at the top. Mark the bottom of the openings lightly in pencil.
Lift back the stencil and add Innocence and the moon from the A5 stamp set in Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Once dry, erase the pencil lines and mask off the images. Replace the stencil.
Brush Midnight Blue Artistry ink through the stencil with a Clarity stencil brush.
Stamp the A5 matching Mixed Impressions Texture stamp through the apertures in Denim Adirondack ink.
Move and repeat to complete the background. Clean the stencil and replace it.
Once the ink is dry, brush Fancy Fuchsia artistry ink through three areas of the stencil with a second stencil brush.
Remove the masks and the stencil.
Colour the images with watercolour pencils, blended out with a watercolour brush pen.
Add shading round the images using navy blue and black watercolour pencils blended out with a watercolour brush pen.
Trim to 6.5” x 6.5” and add to the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.
To finish, add some of the sentiments which come with the stamp set.
