DIY Watercolor Silhouettes

L-O-V-E this!  Now we can all channel our inner Monet and create our own watercolor masterpiece with this DIY technique from Kate of The Lettered Set.  The above example was done using a stencil printed from a free online clip art source. But you could always use your own silhouette profile or any favorite phrases or illustrations as stencils and personalize some stationery, decor, or gifts– and not just for the wedding either (hello Mother’s Day notecards!). Ahh, can you imagine the possibilities?
