I recently held a Technique class teaching my ‘students’ all about using stencils. There are so many ways you can use them, with ink or paste or embossing that I thought I would share a few here this week.
I did find this card online and thought it was just beautiful. Click to see can see the original post by BlueLinePaperTreasures@Blogspot.com. I’m not sure I ever would have put Balmy Blue and Highland Heather together on my own. What a great combination and the black accents just make it pop.
I used Shimmer white paper for the stencil and a sponge brayer. Sponge brayers give a totally different look than sponge daubers, laying down the ink very smoothly. It almost has a watercolor look. I used pacific point first starting in one corner and worked my way diagonally to the other with Highland Heather, letting the colors overlap in the middle.
The daisy was created with 6 layers of daisy punches, 4 large and two medium. I curled the petals downwards with a bone folder and attached them together with glue dots. I used a stampin dimensional to adhere to the card . If you would like to recreate this card, click on the button below for all the dimensions and full step by step instructions.
