I have moved to a new blog… click image for it (this post will be there, too)
I wanted to use this newly purchased Butterfly Gown stencil… so pretty, don’t you think? And here is my card.
The side strip was created with the stencil monoprint technique. To begin, an A2 size stitched rectangle was die cut from Bristol paper. Masked the right side, leaving a panel down the left. Next, applied Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch distress inks directly to the back of a Flourish stencil. Generously spritz it with water, then flipped it over onto the Bristol panel. A paper towel was used to absorb excess water, completing the stencil monoprint.
For the image, Black Soot distress oxide ink (DOx) was pounced through the gown stencil with a mini blending tool, and then heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder. Stamped the sentiment with Tumbled Glass distress ink and then adhered the panel to a white card base to finish.
I had a couple of stencil monoprint pieces from a retreat back in May that I turned into birthday cards for a couple of crafty friends last month. A really fun easy technique.
That’s all from me for today. Find more inspirations HERE from the design team at Seize the Birthday. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
