{Spotlight Project} Exploring A Stencil With Deepti


Hello friends! Deepti here and today I am exploring a stencil. I mean I am not using it the way I usually use... set it up on card stock and ink it up. But today I decided it to use just a part of the stencil for my card. Art Flowers 2 stencil is great not only for some gorgeous background but also you can use the flowers individually to make your spring field :) Let me show you...
 

Step 1 - I started out by making the background. I am lately obsessed with Distress Oxide inks but you can work with whatever inks you have on hand. I smooshed some inks on a silicone surface and sprayed with water. I dabbed the water color card stock on it.


Step 2 - I wanted the yellow to be a little bit more dark so I repeated the step using just yellow ink



Step 3 - I then masked around the flower in the stencil using a masking tape and inked the flowers multiple times to make the floral field. I repeated the same using the other flower.


Step 4 - I used a green watercolor brush pen to paint the stems and leaves. I also used an illustrator pen to add some more details :) To finish I stamped the sentiment.
 

Here is a close up into my card...


I used Art Flowers 2 stencil and Party Time stamp set


That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try.
Happy paper crafting!
