Hi everyone. Playing along with this week's Less Is More Challenge #282 - Use a Stencil. Had to play along as I do LOVE to stencil. :)
Lightly sponged bright yellow through a lattice stencil ... to me, it looks as though the sun is shining through. :)
Just got this pretty die from Penny Black. Used watercolour paper to die-cut the flower sprig and distress inks to watercolour. Pressed ink onto my craft mat, picking up colour with a wet brush to add to the watercolour paper. So easy to do.
After the sprig was dry, I shaped the flower heads and leaves a little with my stylus and mat; then glued it down over top of the stenciled background. A simple white heat embossed sentiment on black finishes the card.
There's still a few days left to play along before the stenciling challenge closes ... come join in the fun. There are so many inspiring cards from the Design Team and entrants.
Since I used a snippet of watercolour paper, I'm heading over to the Snippets Playground for some fun. :)
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
