I’m currently enjoying my first ever online card making class, Stencilled, from Online Card Classes. This morning I had a chance to try out a couple of the techniques from Day 1 – misting and inking stencils. First I used the Tim Holtz Bubble stencil and spritzed it with Mister Huey’s Bazinga blue. After leaving it for a couple of minutes to dry I positioned the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil over the top and used a piece of stamping sponge to apply ink directly from a Stampin Up Daffodil Delight ink pad. I like the control that inking with a sponge provides ;). I felt the panel needed a third colour so this time spritzed Mister Huey Sea Foam closer to the panel to get the splotchy look.
The sentiment is from the fabulous Neat and Tangled Everyday Circles set which arrived in the mail this week – love it! The little arrow was from left over die cuts from the Avery Elle Chevron Bits dies. The top of the white panel was punched with a retired Stampin Up notebook punch.
Hopefully I’ll have more stencilled cards to share later!
