Oh Gosh - one more STENCILED card for Friends with Flair


I've just loved this last week of really intentional work with my stencils.  Hopefully I will be able to keep it up and use them more regularly!  I'm starting out on the right foot by incorporating a stencil in my Friends with Flair card.

I used the SC Sunburst stencil and incorporated both inking and misting.  I first used a sponge dauber to add a pale yellow to the rays.  Then I went over that with some Dylusions ink spray.





I really wanted to accentuate the rays and tie them in with the stamped image which is a little darker, so I just freehand doodled some extra lines along the rays.

The image was stamped with Versafine and I added color highlights using a water brush.

I have to say the one thing I'm finding and loving is that in using stencils, I am able to make a really high impact card without a whole lot of work/time.

Thanks for coming by and have a great weekend!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  CTMH - White Daisy and Black cardstock
Stamps:  Unity - Lightbulb Moment Itty Bitt
Ink:  Versafine; CTMH - Sunkiss Yellow, Honey, Chocolate
Other:  Dylusions - Pure Sunshine Ink Spray; Studio Calico - Sunburst mask; Ranger - Waterbrush; CTMH - Dimensional Foam Tape; Tombow - Mono Adhesive
