The stencil that I chose to work with is PUDDLES, isn't it wonderful?!
The bg was made using the stencil and dropping alcohol inks onto Yupo paper. After drying, I dripped a few drops of colorless blender which added some lighter spots.
I love this quirky saying, "MY OWN WORLD"  from Impression Obsession. This is one of many fun designs from Yvonne Blair that are perfect for pairing with stenciled backgrounds.
