I am just stopping by with two different looks for cards made with a fab sentiment die from Stamplorations and a couple of my stencils. One is grungy and monochrome whilst the other is bright and bold.
Starting with bright and bold:
I simply sprayed through my honeycomb stencil with a range of colours which created a bright and inky background. The large congrats sentiment is die cut from black card and adhered to a square of vellum to ensure that it stands out from the busy background.
I shall link this card up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where we are celebrating birthdays and at Stamplorations April Challenge where we are focusing on the sentiment.
Here I used my geometric grid stencil with grey and silver misters to create a variegated look in the background. I used some aged silver embossing powder to give the die cut sentiment a distressed and metallic look. I also used some Stamplorations stamps around the edge of the card to enhance the grungy look.
I was able to create a second card by turning the stencil over and blotting the inky surface on to a clean piece of white card. This gives a paler and more patchy effect. I simply die cut and popped up the central panel and used the same die cut sentiment from Stamplorations.
I hope you like the effect that I have created by using misters through stencils. They do not give a precise look but can create some fun and quick backgrounds. As always, you can find the stencils that I have used in my Folksy shop!
Thanks for stopping by,
