Adding Details to Blended Stenciling
Hello, all! Today I have a video for you featuring the new Bouquet of Roses stencil from Simon Says Stamp. I actually planned to share this video last week, but wanted to want until the popular new stencil was back in stock. And now it is! I’ll be showing you a couple ways to add details to blended stenciling. :)
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
I added the stencil design to my card by blending four color of Distress Oxide Ink with blender brushes. I used Abandoned Coral, Seedless Preserves, Peeled Paint, and Peacock Feathers.
After removing the stencil, I blended just a bit more over the roses and leaves to add a faded ghosting effect of color. I then added dots with a white Gelly Roll pen, and thin pencil details on the leaves with a colored pencil. TIP: I sharpened my pencil right before using it so that the lines could be as dainty and thin as possible.
For the greeting, I stamped and white heat embossed a greeting from the Tiny Word Encouragement stamp set on vellum. I tripled the layers of vellum (so the greeting was more legible) and then adhered the vellum strip to the front of my card.
Thanks for stopping by today!
