Playing with Stencils & Colors

And I am back again with another card!

I keep mentioning that stencils are one of my favourite tools to operate on – and this time I chose one I had in my stack for some time, but haven’t used in quite some time!

Playing with Stencils & ColorsThis is such an easy card! I picked up my Tim Holtz Stripes stencil, Salty Ocean & Moved Lawn distress inks, picked up a piece of sponge, and placing the stencil at an angle, started dabbing the first ink on. I then reversed the direction and dabbed the second ink on. While inking I took care to ink heavily on the side, and lightly while moving to the center. I placed the stencil over a couple of times to achieve the coverage I wanted. Also, I was able to achieve a look of inter-crossing to a degree..:)

Playing with Stencils & Colors (close up)I then punched out a butterfly from my orange texture paper. I then stamped the sentiment from BoBunny Sentiments stamp set in Memento Tangelo ink on a strip of scrap card stock and cut it out. I adhered this using foam dots on the card base and did the same with the butterfly. I then added a pearl on the butterfly. That finished my card!

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

 CAS(E) This Sketch #106

Just Us Girls Challenge #276

As You See It #70 (I’ve used diagonals , 3 colors and (if that counts) popped up the sentiment!)


Thanks for looking!
