Hi everyone. I spent yesterday with my crafting friends, Susan and Christine. We played with all different stenciling techniques. We all love to work with stencils, so it was fun to try out some new things, revisit some old techniques, and just have fun getting inky. :)
Susan also brought her sweet new puppy, Tessa. She is so adorable and was good as gold while we made cards. Below is a picture of Tessa taken by Susan about a week ago. :) Isn't she precious??!!
I used one of my card fronts from yesterday's play day to create the card above. I cut this cityscape with my Cameo using acetate to create my own stencil. The stencil was placed on top of a piece of mixed media paper and then pressed firmly with a Versamark pad to coat all the open areas of the stencil. Black embossing powder was sprinkled over top and heated until melted. Then more fun with spraying water on the card front and sprinkling on Brushos. I kept adding more colour and spraying more water until I was happy with the background. To finish, I flicked large droplets of water onto the sky using my fingers and blotted up with a paper towel. The splatters add lots of visual texture to the sky.
Turns out this will fit four challenges - YAY!
I'm entering the card above into AAAChallenge #69 - One Stash Favourite. Playing with Brushos is one of my favourites things to do, and the colours for the night sky are definitely the focal point of the card. This is such a great challenge!!
... and entering at CAS-ology #206 - ART. I think this looks like a piece of art. :)
... and also playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch! #181. I moved the sentiment to below my focal point.
I'll be back soon with more cards made from our day of playing with stencils.
Thanks so much for dropping by for a visit!
