Today my cards are for the Monday Challenge on
with a fun challenge:
Take a leapof faith into the unknown.
Just by coincidence I received an email from
The Stencil Girl with a new and fun technique
I definitely wanted to try.You can see
the technique HERE. And this is what I
made to combine the challenge and the technique.
For these cards I used Club Scrap papers from the
Crewel & Unusual kit from February and the UM Stamps.
But also some olde stencils by Club Scrap I have.
I am always on the lookout for new techniques with my stencils.
I have so many, so I want to make good use of them.
With the Crewel & Unusual light kit there was a paisly stencil.
but I do not have that one, so I chose this flower stencil
and two colors of distress paint to work with.
I colored the flowers with the distress paint in two tones.
Lighter color towards the middle of the flower
and the red on the tip of the leave.
After the flower i took this dotted stencil and colored
with shabby shutter distress paint here and there some
Now the ivory paper looks like this.
Next I took a black pen and the stencils. I drew the lines
of the flower, but also doodled some extra lines
to make the page more interesting
When finished with doodling, I took some glimmer
mist colors and just sprayed very lightly over the paper.
After drying I was ready to make cards.
Just cut a background panel and added a sentiment
and some red sequences. Layered the card and finished.
For card #2 also a sentiment and used a piece of
leftover paper as a ribbon.
I just could not throw away the last bit of paper
and cut these up into squares and added them
to a piece of decorated background panel.
The woodse sentiment came with the kit as well.
Just colored it red with the distress paind I used before.
This is such a fun technichnique, I will do this again for sure.
Thanks for looking.
Have a creative day!
