Hey guys!  Inspired by weighanchor's beautiful stencil watercolours http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=300567.0 I went out and bought some masking fluid and dusted off my paints.  Here's my first attempt.

Thanks for the replies everyone!  Don't hesitate to try it.  The only few things I'd like to add to weighanchor's instructions are : buy cheap brushes, or designate some old ones for the masking fluid, because it dries in your brush pretty fast, and have a light touch with your pencil lines, because they show a little through the water colour and you can't erase it then.

Everyone should try this! It's easy peasy!
