Altenew City Scene Stencil

Hey everyone!  Creative time has been a bit scarce for me lately - the school year and fall sports are keeping my free hours less free!  I did have a bit of time to create this weekend, and pulled out the City Scene Stencil from Altenew.  I just love this stencil and wish I had thought of it first!

I placed the stencil down over some dark gray cardstock and spritzed it with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain.

The stencil was removed, and then I flipped it to use the other skyline, and placed it back on the panel, but shifted down a bit.

I sprayed again, but I didn't get the contrast I wanted, so I used a paper towel and brushed with downward strokes to kind of spread the excess stain that was left on the stencil to get a sharper edge/distinction.

To add even more of a contrast, I used a Versamark pen to trace that portion of the skyline (after I dried the stain with a heat gun), and embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

I went back and forth on sentiments, but ended up using this one from my Layered Landscapes set for Neat & Tangled.

I trimmed off 1/8th of an inch from the edge and popped the panel up.

It's a really CAS card, but has a wonderful shine to it.

Hope your week is going well!
