We have another great challenge at AAA Cards for you - this week, our theme is stenciling!
We also have a great sponsor for this challenge: Stampendous has agreed to give the winner a $20 gift certificate to their store - YAY!
I use stencils mostly to create backgrounds but since this challenge is all about stencils, I decided to play around a little bit and do something different. I used a TCW (Stencil Birds) - and sponged through different Distress Ink colours for the birds. I then applied some Texture Paste to create the branches. I found the result a little bit plain so I played some more and added some doodles to the birds on the first card. On the second card, I added some water drops to the birds and then finished them with some Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. I traced along the bottom of the branches with a black pen to make them stand out a little bit more and finished off with an Altenew Label Love greeting popped up with foam.
A very different type of card for me - much more mixed media than I usually do... I am still not sure how I feel about the finished result but it was fun to play!
So now it's your turn to play along and have some fun with stencils!
Thanks for stopping by!
