More Gesso Stenciling

Hi everyone.  On Sept. 1st, I posted a card for the CAS Mix Up September Challenge - Stenciling with Gesso.  I created a second card using the same technique, gesso and stencil, changing up the colours and the design a bit.

This time I used a panel of Baked Brown Sugar card stock(retired from SU!) for the backdrop of my stenciling with gesso.  I changed up the medium, using distress inks (Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin) instead of acrylic paints.  I again used my white Posca pen to outline the stenciling.

The sentiment (Blowout Birthday - retired from Poppy Stamps) is stamped in the same Baked Brown Sugar ink, stamping it several times, so it appears slightly darker and stands out on the card.  I love the addition of the torn edge to add another element to this CAS design.

Close-up ...
I've even added a torn edge to the inside of the card to carry the theme from the front to the inside.

Thanks for stopping by!

I think I prefer this one to your blue and lime version, the torn edge loos v effective, especially repeated on the inside. :)

The leaves are lovely on that brown cardstock, Loll, and I love the torn edge. Outlining in white was a great idea. On my card some of the white shows naturally which I'm not sure is a good thing.

A stunning CAS card with loads of texture to accent the fabulous stencilling Loll. Love it

Beautiful colour combo Loll, and love how you coloured the gesso'd leaves.

Another beautiful card using the gesso technique you used for your beautiful launch card, Lolly. It will make a wonderful Autumn Birthday card for a guy or girl:-) TFS my friend. I hope to try your Gesso technique soon:-) Love and Hugs..Nancy

I love these Fall colors and the torn edges, Lolly! A fantastic card inside and out!

What a lovely way to send birthday wishes!

I was so bummed when they retired Baked Brown is still one of my favorite brown colors! This card is just as lovely as the 1st one Loll, and definitely evokes the feeling of a warm Fall day! Lovely, lovely card my friend!! Hugs. :0)

Another great card and perfect showcase for that technique. Love that torn edge effect too. It is becoming a trademark of yours xx

Leslie Miller said...

In addition to the stencil and gesso technique with your coloring, I also like how you stamped the sentiment to span the two layers. This is such a lovely stencil and your colors warm and hinting of fall.

This is a great design Loll and I love the caramel colour with the wonderful gessoed leaf design, and the torn edge works brilliantly. Both the last and this design and colour are fabulous, and what a great idea to add the piece inside the card too. x

Another fabulous gesso stenciled card, Loll! The change of colors and the torn edge design give this card a totally different look from your launch card. The echoing torn edge inside of the card will give the recipient a nice surprise when s/he opens the card. You gifted me a Birthday Blowout stamp set on my birthday and it's one of my favorite birthday sentiment sets. :-)

Great use of the technique! I love the torn kraft panel. I spent the afternoon playing with Gesso. I finally finished a card I was happy to share.

What a great technique, Loll and it really pops on the coloured card. Love how you stamped over the edge of the torn paper!
Hope you are well.
Take care,

Gorgeous spray of leaves on the kraft, Loll - love it with the torn edge!!

Two stunning cards, Loll. Bidding the craft panel into two parts allowed to create a set of two amazing cards. The use of gesso allowed for beautiful coloring on craft paper.
