July’s challenge theme – Sparkle & Shine prompts me to think of weddings and anniversaries. And I am using this stencil, Hero Arts Love Swirls Stencil today.
Isn’t it lovely? Now let’s take a look of my projects.
First up I made a CAS wedding card. The pattern of the stencils reminds me of a bride’s veil, or it could be some details on a wedding dress. So I went ahead and align the stencil on a white card base so that only half is on the card. I masked the necessary areas and spread a light modeling paste over the stencil, lifted the stencil and sprinkled Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter over the paste right away so they would adhere. After it dried I furbish the glitter by rubbing the stenciled area. And shake off the excess glitter. Then I heat embossed the sentiment in Brass.
Next I created an anniversary card. I used an inking tool and inked only parts of the stencil. I did one side first then move the stencil to the opposite side and repeated the process. Then the sentiment is stamped in black and clear heat embossed.
Next I masked the stenciled area and the sentiment, and splatter the middle section with Glimmer Metallic Gold Ink.
Both cards are one layer, so very mailing friendly! 🙂 Btw, the Love Swirls stencil is on sale right now, It’s 50% off the regular price. Get yours today.
