As you will already know, our April challenge is about stencilling. I was inspired by cards that I saw the fabulous Jill Foster share recently where she used the negative of a die to create a stencil for producing a watercolour design. I had just got my hands on Hero Arts Palm die cut and thought I would give it a go:
I cut the die out of a piece of scrap card and watercoloured it with distress inks. I am nowhere near as good an artist as Jill but was pleased with this as a first attempt. Watercolour is very forgiving and I love the loose look it gives. I combined it with the gorgeous Happy die cut which I stacked up on several layers for extra dimension. I think this will make a good masculine birthday card.
I hope my card has inspired you to look at the stencilling potential of your dies! You still have 2 weeks to play along with our April challenge and there is a $25 gift card prize to use in store.
