Just popping by to remind you that there is still time to join us over at STAMPlorations for the current challenge.
Here is my card inspired by the photo below.
I've tried this stencil technique before and thought it would work with the above photo. At first I was going to use the lolly theme again but the die cut lolly that matches the Sweet Cravings set is a little too small so I went with a heart and romantic theme suggested by the colours. I love the way the colour changes but the pattern continues over the whole panel.
I took a panel of white card and a similar sized one of masking paper. From the masking paper I cut a heart shape then laid the mask over the card panel. Removing the out mask but leaving the inner heart in place, I then placed the Old Rose Print stencil over the whole creating a hinge with some masking tape and inked through with a light grey ink to match the background of the photo. Replacing the outer mask, after lifting up the stencil, I removed the central heart and laid the stencil back over. This time I added some red ink in various shades before removing the stencil and inking over the whole with a pale pink ink.
Finally the mask was removed completely and the sentiment s added. The congrats was cut three times and glued together before adding, the sentiment strip stamped in black with part of the Smile set was added with pads. A few sequins complete the design.
