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,

  1. Love both of these. Love that die cut over the vellum panel. Hugz

  2. A great design, Sarah, I'm smitten with the first one because of the colors! Thank you for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  3. I love the effect you got with the spray over your wonderful stencils, Sarah. I don't have regular sprays but I do have the TH marker sprayer and am going to give that a try.

  4. Yes, yes, yes. Way to focus on the sentiment (don't you love that die?) Thanks so much for joining us at STAMPlorations this month, Sarah.
