Sponged Stenciling and More
Hi everyone. Sharing two more sunflower stenciled cards using sponging over a stencil. The first one (above) is just sponging ... simple. I used distress inks and then added a fun sentiment from Lawn Fawn to finish. Easy, peasy one layer CAS card.
Here's my second version ... with a slight difference ...
The second one is sponging as well, but there's a little more to it. This has been dry embossed first using the stencil, and then sponged afterwards. LOVE this subtle embossing, but it's hard to capture in a photo.
For dry embossing with stencils, here's the "sandwich" that works for me with my Big Shot ... (Open to Tab 1 on platform, cutting plate, stencil taped to card front ... stencil facing down, silicone mat, Sizzix Textures impression pad).
I left the stencil and card front taped together while I sponged over the sunflower. Looks very similar to the card above, but in real life you can see the raised design of the sunflower and it adds just a little something extra. I took a close-up shot, but not sure you can really see the difference ... trust me, it looks very cool. :) I added another "sunny" sentiment ... who knew that I had so many different ones??!! :)
Just another couple of ways to use a stencil. I hope you are enjoying all the different ways I'm using this stencil. It's been lots of fun and I still have more ways to try. :)
I'm entering this into AAA Cards #69 - One Stash Favourite Challenge. I do love to play with stencils. :)
Hope you are all having a great day. Thanks so much for dropping by for a visit!
