Aloha and Happy Wednesday friends! This month’s challenge is playing with stencils and there are so many techniques to use. The best part about stencils is they’re inexpensive and super versatile! Here’s my card for today…
I first created some stripes using Distress Inks in Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch on Strathmore Mixed Media paper. Then I took the Hero Arts Peacock Feathers Stencil and layed it over and gave it a quick mist of water, blotting away the excess. This technique gives you a bit of a “bleached look.” Extra tips: fine mist works best and blotting right after. Also placing a darker layer of Distress Inks makes the “bleaching effect” more prominent.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts Birthday Messages and is inked in Hero Arts Intense Black ink and added a couple of thin black strips of cardstock to bring out the black ink. To complete the look I added the new Hero Arts Ombre Ocean sequins. These sequins are gorgeous and I love that there are different shades and 2 different sizes!
I hope this inspires you to join our monthly challenge for your chance to win $25 to the a2z Scrapbooking store! We also have ANOTHER chance for you to get a $25 gift certificate by simply commenting on each blog post throughout March!
