I have added a bold stripes stencil to my Folksy store which I made in order to play along with two of my favourite challenges - Time Out and Less is More.
First up is my card for Time Out where we had a lovely photo inspiration to work from.
I simply inked the stencil in Salty Ocean distress oxide on the card blank and then I clear embossed my knitted background stencil on a piece of kraft card to pick up on the texture of the sofas in the photo. The fab sentiment is a die cut from Stamplorations. Hopefully this captures the nautical look of the photo which is:
Next up I have a card for Less is More where we are making one layer cards with a theme of stripes. I used the same stencil but this time moved it along and overlapped the colours to create a different effect. I used Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxides.
The sentiment is from Altenew and the stars are from Uniko's Background Builders Seeing Stars set.
I hope this has given you a feel for the ways that you can use the stencil to get different looks.
