Hello, Sarah here!
I just wanted to share a few cards that I have made whilst playing with the fabulous Triangle stencil. Stencils are so versatile and these triangles suit so many designs and techniques – including embossing which is the theme for this month’s challenge.
I simply inked randomly through the stencil with versamark and white embossed it on watercolour card. I then wet the card and used distress inks (Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn) to create the watercolour look. This is so simple but creates a really effective background. I just added a white embossed sentiment to complete the card.
I made a second card in different colours to give a completely different look:
I inked through the stencil in Ripe Persimmon, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks, fading out towards the centre. I love the sense of movement that these triangles create. I then used a bold sentiment as a focal point.
I like to make a background stencil or stamp the star of the show every now and again – with different techniques and colours they can really shine.
