Welcome to our February Technique Blog Hop where it’s all “Stunning Stencils”. There are so many ways to use stencils on your creations and I can’t wait for you to see the awesome creations from our participants. If you are coming from Krista Hersberger then you’re in the right place. If not I invite you to join on in. If you get a bit lost you can find the full list here.
Today I’d like to share with you one card in two different colour ways. I’ve used the Card Front Stencil Pack #1 (Z4341), along with Distress Oxide Inks (Candied Apple Z3826, Spiced Marmalade Z3829, Mustard Seed Z3830, Chipped Sapphire Z3834, Mermaid Lagoon Z4521, and Peacock Feathers Z3833). I used the Mini Ink Blending Tools (Z3886) to pounce the ink through the stencil. I took extra care to not rub too much as some of the parts of the stencil are fine and I didn’t want to damage them.
To create the flowers I cut cardstock petal layers using the Layered Flowers Die Set (Z4324) in Candy Apple and Harbour colours. I took care to cut every second layer from the lighter side of the card stock. So when stacked together i had dark side, light side, dark side, etc. Before sticking together I spritzed the layers with water to soften the cardstock and then scrunched them into balls. I opened them back out and then stuck them together with Liquid Glass (Z679). In the centre of each flower I’ve used Bitty Beads (Z3783 & Z3784), again stuck in with liquid glass. I love how it dried clear on what ever you use it on.
