Simply Stencils

I love playing with stencils. They are inexpensive, come in thousands of different patterns and have millions of uses. For this month’s challenge at Scrap It Girl, “Things with Wings”, I grabbed some brand-new stencils and went to work …


I started with a sheet of white cardstock and inked a circle with Distress Ink using a new template by Colorbox. Then I filled in with sides and bottom with Distress Ink.



Next, I taped The Crafter’s Workshop stencil with washi tape. This both holds the stencil in place and masks off parts I do not want to ink.


Then I used a finger daubber and Ranger Archival Ink in black to stencil the image. I moved the stencil a few times to ink the entire card.



Here is the finished background …

008Next, I inked the birds … these are wood pieces from Unique Laser Designs.


After they were inked, I covered the top with Glastique to make them rich and shiny.

007And then I used Designer Dries Clear adhesive to glue them to the front of the card.


I think this is perfect for a guy or nature lover. It would be a nice thank-you card, sympathy card or get-well-soon card, don’t you think?

Now it’s your turn … create a project with wings and enter it at Scrap It Girl. You could win a fabulous prize if yours is chosen as the best! I cannot wait to see what you create!
