CARD DETAILS

I was very excited to try new layering stencils. There are a lot of things one can do using a stencil, lots of techniques and having a layering set of stencils certainly adds a lot to all the fun! I made several cards to test out various mediums, approaches and simply to play!

My first project, Gold Hello features Layered Medallion A Stencil and Tonic Golden Crystal Nuvo Glimmer Paste. I used Altenew’s Spicy Yogurt cardstock (I decided not to use any white today, only sentiment strips were stamped on white) and added a generous amount of paste. I love the glittery shimmery look I was able to get.

My second project, Teal Friend features Layered Medallion B Stencil and Tonic Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste. To create the background I first did some ink blending using a stencil and Altenew inks. I blended Ocean Waves and darkened the edges of my panel using Emerald. Next I added a generous amount of white translucent glimmer paste, but I only added it to some sections, I did not cover the entire background. This created a lot of interest and added tons of detail to my card.

My third project, Pink Hello was created using both A and B stencils and Tonic Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste. This time I used A stencil and blended ink onto my background. I used Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy and Coral Berry. Next I switched to a B stencil and applies a generous solid layer of Moonstone paste. Because this paste is somewhat translucent you can see the ink blended background underneath it. Love this look!

To create sentiments I used Super Script and Halftone Circles.
