Gesso Card 2

Gesso Cards

 Decided to participate in Club Scraps' May Technique Challenge, and here is what I came up...

These first two cards, I used watercolor paper as a base.  I used stencils and gesso and let dry.  I then spritzed with delusions ink spray and let dry.  I then used a wet wipe to wipe the color from the gesso to make them pop out a bit.
