Hi Crafty Friends,
I have 2 more projects using some of the Divinity Designs February Release products. Today I am focusing on the new Glorious Easter Stamp set with the two new stencils ... Arrows & Flourishes.
For my first card today I have used the Glorious Easter Stamp set along with the Arrows Mixed Media Stencil and Lever Card Die & Lever Card Layers Die sets.
One of my favorite ways to use stencils is to apply ink through the stencil using a blending tool and then move the stencil over to add a second color. It gives the background an entirely different look.
For this background I adhered the Arrows Stencil onto a piece of white cardstock and then applied Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink through the stencil. The photo on the right is how the stencil should look like when you use it as it was designed to be used without adding the extra step.
To create the two tone look of the background on my card, once you have applied the ink through the stencil the first time, remove the stencil and then place the stencil back onto the card so that you now have white space between the pattern. For my card I used Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide inks.
For the sentiments I used the rectangles from the Scalloped Rectangles die set also new for February adding the same Distress Oxide colors and stamping the sentiments using black ink. I sponged the inks to the cardstock panel while the die was still in place so I could get the white border.
For the front of the card, I added another Scalloped Rectangle which had been sponged with ink in the centre and then added orange gems to the rectangle.
For my second card today I again used the Glorious Easter Stamp set this time with the Mixed Media Stencil - Flourishes and Vintage Label Flip Fold Card with Layers Die set.
For this background I used the Flourishes Stencil with Yupo Paper and Alcohol Ink and Alcohol Lift Ink.
I used Flamingo, Pink Sherbet, Shell Pink, Crimson Alcohol Inks to create the alcohol inked background before placing the stencil over the inked panel and lifting off the ink using the Alcohol Lift Ink reinker. I also added some silver foil over the background while the ink was still slightly wet.
For the layering of the image and sentiment on the centre panel I used the Double Pierced Vintage Labels Die set.
