I use stencils once in a while in my artwork. I usually don't use stencils of people or animals, I will just use patterns or designs. So it was fun to step out of my comfort zone to try this new stencil.
StencilGirl sent me the Bubble Girl stencil.
I dug through my stash of paper and found this cool "bubble printed" paper I made two years ago. I made a tutorial for bubble printing on my art education blog.

I used my ink pad to stamp through the stencil. This ink pad has sections that can be easily removed for stamping.
Place the ink pad on the stencil and dab it up and down to push ink through the stencil.
Here is the bubble girl stenciled on the bubble paper. I tore around the image of the girl. I didn't like the red splotch that was on the paper, so I will cover it up later.
I then set this image aside and prepared a background page. I started with a white sheet of paper and stenciled another girl with bubbles using blue ink. Magenta paint was smeared around the image. Then, I tore photocopies of my artwork and some of my watercolor doodles and glued these on the paper.
Then, I covered parts of this background with white paint, turquoise, magenta, and light blue paint.
Black lines were stamped with the edge of a piece of cardboard. Star stamps were stamped on the upper right corner and black and white circles were stamped with a plastic lid and paint.
I painted white over the bubble girl to tone down the bright colors a bit.
