Welcome back! Did you know that Rubbernecker Stamps now has stencils? Today I've used the beautiful Bold Rose stencil to create the background for this card.
I taped the stencil down over my base and used a small square of cardstock as a mask. I slowly started blending inks... a couple greens for the leaves and a couple purples for the flowers... covering the flowers when I colored the leaves and covering the leaves as I colored the flowers. When I was done, I used a sponge and a little bit of water to add some Nuvo Gold Mousse randomly. My mousse dried up pretty quickly, but I've found that it's fun to use this way... I just take a wet sponge and swipe it over the dried mousse a few times and then apply it where I want it using the sponge. A paintbrush works nicely too! Finally, I added some translucent texture paste for shine and texture. Then I lifted the stencil and set it aside to dry.
I cut the top piece using the Borders #1 die and ink blended that with the same purples. Then I blended a couple more pieces of cardstock with the purples and greens to die cut my flowers and leaves from.... adding some of the gold mousse as well.
Finally I cut one of the smaller rectangles and stamped this beautiful sentiment in Versamark and then heat embossed it with Wow Superfine Metallic Gold embossing powder. I used another strip of ink blended cardstock to ground the sentiment and added my flowers, leaves and sequins.
It was fun to color this stencil pattern using ink blending brushes and distress oxides and pretty easy just using a small piece of paper as a mask!
Thanks so much for stopping and hope you'll come again soon!
