Each month the designers at Craft-Dee BowZ are given a theme for our individual post.
This month the theme is to use stencils.
Sometimes I will experience the fact that my muse goes on strike. Can't think of anything.This was one of those times.
So I dug into my treasure trove of stencils and came up with a design of sorts.
First I wanted to add dimension to this card so I used Texture Paste from Ranger. At first I decided to color the paste a yellow color so I applied it over the stencil on the panel and dried it, Then I found I wanted a deeper color so I colored the image the orange color you see,used a Memento marker to change the color.
After the paste was dry I decided the panel looked like it was lacking something.Too much white space. So I pulled another stencil and just used a sponge dauber to add ink over the stencil . This added more designs to the various areas, filling in those voids that were there on the panel.
Next I made some of my handmade flowers in an orange tone and punched out a few sprigs of foliage. I added those.
Next I added my bow, and of course I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool. Te bow I made is a triple loop bow in a mint green. After that I added a sentiment on a tag and positioned that on the card and I am calling this one done.
Let me show you the texture on those large orange stenciled flowers
Don't be afraid to add texture to your card, Apply some texture paste over a stencil, kind of glop it on. When you pull that stencil off it will give the design on your card a really great, raised effect.
Go for it!! LOL
