Zoom Call Card

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing a card I made as a sample for a Sponging Techniques Zoom call held earlier today with a few of my dear stamping friends.

I followed one of Eileen Godwin's techniques for this card (click HERE for link to Eileen's video).

For the background I used a Flourish stencil from Tim Holtz.  The Tulip stencil is one I cut with my silhouette cameo a few years back.  The sentiment is from a retired set from Technique Tuesday.

Close-up ...
I'm entering this card into the Just For Girls Challenge #566 - Use a stencil.  I've actually used two on this card. :)

I will be back later this month with a few more cards using the techniques from today's session.  Thanks for stopping by!

This is beautiful Loll and love the pretty more gentle tones for the background using this sponging technique in the video, and your silhouette tulips work so well as the focal image and a super sentiment too. x

Looks amazing Loll, I had so much fun on today's zoom get together :)

It turned out beautifully, Loll - your stencilling adds lovely texture. And of course, you used beautiful "Loll colours". I must get mine put together and enter it for CAS Mix Up "splatter" as I used a fair bit of splatter.

This is gorgeous Loll, beautiful stencils and how you used them. I love the effect of the background with your colours and then the black tulip stencil. I didn't know you were a fan of the Cameo too?

Wow, do I love this one! That background is gorgeous so thanks for the link. That is one, fabulous stencil. I think you should be in the design business with a stencil like that! This one really struck me.

Bonnie said...

That stenciled background shows up beautifully in the photo, Lolly! Love those gorgeous flowers add so much contrast! So far I have batted 0 on the gesso. My gesso wants to soak up the paint. Maybe I need some new gesso. Thanks so much for sharing your expertise, my friend!

Ros Crawford said...

It's gorgeous! I love the stenciling, the dots and the added sparkle... There's nothing not to love!
