Welcome to a new month and a new challenge with Scrap It Girl … Stencils and Masks. I love stencils and I wanted to try them with a variety of mediums, including paint, paste and ink.
I started by coloring a piece of white cardstock in a variety of Distress Ink colors.
Then I used a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop and Distress Paint to add a bit of chicken wire.
(the blue came off of the stencil. I thought it was just stained, but it came off. I left it there as a little character.)
Next, I used another Crafter’s Workshop Stencil, along with Dreamweaver’s Glossy Black Embossing Paste to add a few weeds.
Then, I punched out a circle and used Distress Ink and a Wendy Vecchi stencil to add the word “Happy”.
I covered chipboard letters with Distress Paint. I used Removable Glue Dots to keep the letters in place while I painted.
Then I adhered the front to a card base, put on the letters and added a few bees from Little B.
It’s bold and it is very different from my usual creations. I am still not sure if I like it or not … what do you think?
Now it’s your turn … create a project with masks or stencils and post it to Scrap It Girl. You could win an amazing collection of prizes! Good luck!
I like it. Like the silhouette look the black paste gives the card.
