More Playing With Stencils

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with another card that is the result of some late night experimentation. As you’ve probably noticed, I love incorporating stencils into my cards and I’ve amassed quite a collection. I’m always looking for new and different ways to use them. Like many crafters, I’ve also accumulated a variety of different mediums that I often play around with (also with varying results!).

When I decide to try expanding my coloring beyond Copics, I purchased a set of Prismacolor pencils, but found that I didn’t really enjoy using them. But recently I decided to give it one more try – not with Prismas – but with Farber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils. Although I do suffer from full set syndrome, I did manage to control myself and purchased a set of 36 pencils, which I thought would have enough variety to in color to experiment.

I selected the Peacock Mandala stencil from Picket Fence Studios and taped it in place with iCraft Purple tape to a piece of Stonehenge White paper. I wanted the mandala to be bright and colorful, so I selected a several pencils in blues, greens and yellows. Then I just colored the open areas of the stencil. Polychromos pencils are oil based and seem to soak into the paper. I found them much easier to use than Prismas and did not need to use Gamasol to blend.

Once the coloring was complete, I removed the stencil and applied the dot pattern with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony Black. I really have to thank Wendy Vecchi for showing me in a recent class how to apply enamel drop products with a stylus for a quick, easy, and consistent application.

To finish, I added a die cut from Honey Bee Stamps that I popped up with foam squares. I really love how this card turned out and I’m sure I’ll keep this technique in mind when I’m using my stencils.

Dragonfly Ride by House Mouse Designs

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Today’s card it a little bit of a throwback to my early coloring days. When I first started coloring, most of my early images were from House Mouse Designs. As time passed, I started coloring images from other stamp companies, but I still have a soft spot for Amanda, Monica, Mudpie, Maxwell and Muzzy. So today’s card features Monica and friend on a Dragonfly Ride!

When planning my project, I decided to start with the stenciling. I didn’t want to have to recolor the image if I made a mistake with the stenciling. So I die cut the paper and stamping the image so I would know where to position the stenciling. Using Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, I carefully stenciled around the image. Then I colored the image with Copic markers and heat embossed the sentiment. I added Wink of Stella in Clear to the dragonfly wings for a little extra shimmer.

That’s it for today! See ya soon!
