Friendly stencil project

Hi everyone!

With the grey weather outside I spend much more time in my cozy craft area, creating new cards. I do everything to not think about the grey, wet and cold weather outside but crafting is my favourite moment of them all 🙂 When I have some ideas, cards just keep coming! I love those days. The other day I  made a few cards for various card challenges and now, hopefully every day, I will be posting them here 🙂

Today’s card was made using a stencil, a gorgeous stencil with flowers by memory box. I used modelling paste, that painters use on canvases, as my embossing paste and it worked great. I mixed it with my distress inks, the colours were not so vibrant as I expected but I eventually was glad for the look I got.

I decided to use black card base to add the frame around the colourful panel and then break the black with my white gel pen and add a stitched frame around it. I then added a banner which I fussy cut with a sentiment form my Hero Arts stamp set – amazing friend, and added two birdies in blue and green, a little easter eggs – they are my and my husbands favourite colours 🙂 I used clear Wink of Stella and some glossy accent there but you can sadly hardly see it on the pictures 😦

I like the dimension the paste gave and the colours I mixed in:) It was fun to work with a new medium.
