Stenciled Tulips


Hi everyone.  Quick post today ...

I used a cut file from Silhouette America to make my own tulip stencil for this card.  Love how this turned out!  I used the colors from SCS Color Challenge #471 - use at least three from this group of colors - black, pistachio pudding, crisp cantaloupe, pool party, sahara sand and summer starfruit.  These are all SU! colors but as long as you use similar colors, that's fine.  I don't have the pistachio color, so I sponged the stems and leaves in yellow and then over-sponged in the pale blue to get my green :)  I also didn't have the soft orange color, so sponged my tulips with yellow and over-sponged with coral.  I like how it turned out.  I mixed light gray re-inker with water and used a large brush (chopping with the side of my hand), to splatter the card front.  I didn't add a sentiment this time, so this card can be used for many different occasions.

I used another piece of my designer paper "collection" :) ... to add some pattern to the card.

Hope you are all having a great day! :)

Love your Silhouette stencil, Loll...that's so pretty! Your sponging is fabulous on this beauty!

This is so pretty, Loll! These tulips are prettier for the blending of two colors than they would have been if you'd had the actual inks! Lovely!
