SDC93::Stencils with Stampotique Images
This week at Stampotique Jane has challenged us to use Stencils in our projects. I made a Master board on a sheet of watercolor paper using Imagine Crafts "Fireworks!" spray inks and stencils. The stencils incorporated here are from Dyan Reaveley, Julie Fei Fan Balzer and Office Max. It is just layer after layer of colors with different stencils. After each layer of color I made sure the paper was thoroughly dry before spraying another layer of color. The key with a Master board is to save it by making a photocopy of it, then you could cut up either the original or the copy and start working with it. Here is my card with a couple of Stampotique images and some leaves by Dyan Reaveley.
After I finished the card I decided to do a chevron stencil with ImaineCraft's "Vintage" color just to give it a little more texture. All of the background color ended up being done with layers and layers of stencils sticking to the pastel colored Fireworks! called Angel Pink, Lulu Lavender and Summer Sky. The beauty of a Master board is all parts of it are different colors with different stencils showing through. This way you can cut a piece off on any portion of the board and get whatever effect or color that you desire.
I hope you have a wonderful day. The sun is shining here and most of the snow has melted. The daffodils are inching their way up and out. We should have some vibrant color here soon! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog today. I always appreciate any comments you have time to leave. Talk to you soon!
