Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a stenciled card that I made for a friend's birthday a while ago.
I started with a lightly smooshed background of Inka Gold (turquoise and green). Then embossing paste was added partially over a mesh stencil.
Turquoise Inka Gold was sponged onto a piece of white card stock. When dry, it was buffed to a beautiful shine and then die-cut into a leaf sprig. The second leaf sprig is cut from vellum and is tucked behind the turquoise leaves, just to add a little bit of a shadow. A simple birthday sentiment was stamped in Delicata Silver ink onto a banner. Delicata inks are beautiful and metallic without having to heat emboss.
I do love to play with stencils! And this was a lot of fun to make.
One more reminder card for the June CAS Mix Up Challenge (Die-cuts). The challenge closes in three days. Come join us!
