There seems to be a larger population of yellow butterflies in my neighborhood this year – which is a nice thing!

I was thinking I needed a “Christmas in July” post for the blog, but, ALAS, it didn’t turn into a Christmas card, and I didn’t post it in July!

When I got this stencil last year, my first thought was to make each fish a different color…and my logistical brain said “way too much work”. I FINALLY went back to my first thought, and am very glad I took the time!
I used Post-It tape to mask off each individual fish, each bubble (yes, I have a few places where I missed).
When the ink was dry, I repositioned the stencil and applied clear embossing paste over the colored fish. After the embossing paste dried, I applied a very light watercolor wash (and tried to keep my brush as dry as possible, since I didn’t use watercolor or Bristol paper) to make the watery background.
Mood when done: HAPPY. 🙂
