This weeks challenge is ‘Stencil It’. Fun!!
I started out using the Radiating Rays stencil from My Favorite Things. I used Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink for both layers. First coat was thru the stencil and I laid the color down pretty heavy and then removed the stencil and went over the whole thing with a lighter coat of the same color. Then I added some water droplets and … wah lah!
The giraffe is from the Wild Cuddly Critters by Simon Says Stamp. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock. I then colored it with my Copic markers (I’d tell you which colors, but I didn’t keep track) and then fussy cut it out. Mounted to black card stock and embossed the sentiment. The sentiment came from the Avery Elle Simply Said:Amazing stamp set.
I had so much fun making this card, I went nuts and made a second, slightly different one.
This time my stencil is from Honey Bee Stamps. I created the rainbow background using Distress Oxide inks. My rainbow colors are; Wilted Violet, Broken China, Cracked Pistachio, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, and last, but not least, Worn Lipstick. Again I laid down a pretty heavy first coat thru the stencil and then went over it lightly once I removed the stencil to cover up the white areas.
I then cut my panel out with Simon Says Stamp Wonky Rectangles die. Also used the smallest die to cut out my little blue panel that I mounted the giraffe on. Embossed my sentiment on black, cut my fish tail, and called it a day.
