Celebrations Stencil Techniques – AECP

Here are my cards for the next class – Celebrations Stencil Techniques.

This class taught me some new techniques to use with my stencils and I utilize 2 of them for these cards.

Stencil Techniques

Supplies

  • Altenew Dye Inks in Pink and Yellow Shades
  • Tranquility Rose Stamp & Die & Coloring Stencil Bundle
  • Mega Hydrangea Stencil
  • White Embossing Powder with Versamark Ink

The Cards

For the first card, I did some watercoloring with my inks on my panel and used the Tranquility Rose Coloring Stencils to lightly blend over my watercolors.

Once my background was done, I used the outline stamp for the flower and a couple leaves using the pink ink used in my watercoloring and blending. I then die cut those and adhered them to the lower right corner of my panel.

I heat embossed a sentiment and used the flower die cut to cut the ends so it would line up with my flower. I like how it fits perfectly on my flower.

The next card was a little more difficult. During this technique, I was trying to watercolor my panel with my stencil on top of my paper. I didn’t use any tacky spray on my stencil and my first attempt just made a yellow mess with no definition of my stencil. I smartened up and used tacky spray but then I thought I would add another color, but all I did was make another mess. It took me 3 panels before I got it right. The Mega Hydrangea Stencil has very thin lines, but I hadn’t used it yet and really wanted to create a card with it – I just had a few upsets a long the way.

Fine Lined Hydrangea Stencil

I pulled out the small flowers from the Tranquility Rose Stamp & Die & Coloring Stencil Bundle and created some small flowers for the front of my panel. I used a long – single strip to go across the panel.
