I love stag images and decided to create a stencil that would allow me to use a gorgeous stags head on some card designs. This is a stencil that I cut from the same image as the mdf shape that I shared recently here.
Here are a couple of the cards that I made with my new stencil today:
The open space of the stag's head provides a great opportunity for inking and stamping which is what I did here with some Card-io and Uniko stamps. The sentiment is from Penny Black and the doe is grounded with some glitter which isn't showing up too well here! I will link this card up at Less is More where the challenge this week is over stamping and at Simon's Monday Challenge where the theme is monochrome.
Here I dabbed gold paint through the stag aperture and them added some snowflake and foliage stamps from Uniko in black to create an elegant Christmas colour combination. I shall link this card up as a third entry at Simon Wednesday's Anything Goes Challenge.
I have added the stencil to my folksy shop in case you are interested in getting hold of one for yourself. The stencil measures 13cm x 13 cm and the stag image itself measures approx. 9cm tall which makes it a great size as a focal point on cards and other projects.
