Stenciled: Day 2

Today's class was about using your stencils as templates. I was very inspired by Kristina Warner and Julia Embersole's cards and techniques today. So I made a card using a mix of both of their techniques.

I used a floral stencil as a template and I sponged green and blue Distress Inks into my card, creating the background. I did the same thing on the strip of Kraft paper, but instead of using ink I used a white paint.

On the vellum I stamped the sentiment in white embossing powder and then coloured over it using Copic markers. I mimicked the blue and green fading into each other like I did in the background. To add a little bit more to the vellum strip I used a Versamark pen to traced/coloured in the peddles and then heat embossed them in white as well. Now you can see some peddles showing through the vellum and some sitting ontop of the vellum.

I did a similar thing on the inside of the card, except I was much lighter with the sponging/colours.

Thanks for visiting,
