Stenciling...

Cheryl here today, with a post using one of the new stencils.

One of the products Fleurette Bloom designs are stencils. They are such a bargain and really versatile. I finally got one out to play.


I had Fleurette show me the proper alignment and then it was easy. I don't have an finger daubers and need to get some. But I have some sponge things on sticks, lol. I used Distress Inks and worked my way around the rose. I wish I'd have kept the center a bit lighter but next time I will. Once I had the parts of the rose stenciled, I trace the main piece onto a piece of masking paper and cut it out. I then laid it on the image and began to work on the other elements. 

I felt it needed a stem, so I got out a fine brush and tried to sketch in a stem, soft and not harsh edges. I then used the stencil for just a couple of leaves.

I then began to work on the leaves. With the mask in place, it was pretty easy to not go over. Then I grabbed for the buds and some yellow ink and stenciled those. Lastly, I added the flower center.


Once I had the stenciling finished, I mixed up some black and some gold to add spatters to the card front. I stamped the sentiment and added some sequins. I matted with some black cardstock and mounted it to the card base with foam tape. 


Hope you get a bit of inspiration from this card and get out your supplies and create your own.

Happy Crafting!
