Embellished Stencil card

I have just had an article published in Crafts Beautiful which features stencilling, so I thought I’d show you this card.

I guess this would qualify as a Less is More card?  It uses the Crafter’s Workshop Cherry Blossom stencil (12×12)which I have then embellished by drawing flower centres with a Pigma Micron pen.  I used Memento dye inks for the stencilling – Pistachio and a mixture of Morroco and Love Letter.  I used a lovely stencil brush which has a rounded top rather than the traditional flat top and I use a swirling motion rather than a pouncing or stippling action. It’s easier on the hand and gives a lovely soft, even colour.

The sentiment is from Pretty Poppies, stamped with Love Letter, and I trimmed it to a rectangle then used my Zutter wide corner rounder on it.  I’m going to have to get some more of that red satin ribbon in – it’s perfect for Christmas and I seem to have run out of it!

    This is a lovely card Glenda. I have several stencils but I’m not very good at using them, the round tipped brush sounds like a good idea though. Jean x

  5. The colours are absolutely terrific & I love the way those flowers pop with your doodled flower centres. The combination of crisp white & red with the other colours is beutifully effective. Definitely Less is More but really stylish.
