I created a card using a stencil, Oxide inks in an ombre with Clarity brushes, and a dreamy sentiment from Tim Holtz.
Putting It Together
I love stencils. They're one of my favourite tools.
To keep my stencil from moving while I added the colours, I sprayed it with a repositionable adhesive.
I then placed the stencil on a sheet of watercolour paper and pressed it down to adhere it.
I used Clarity brushes to add the Oxide inks in an ombre: Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, and Shaded Lilac.
I used the Distress sprayer to spritz on some water and droplets.
I added Perfect Pearls gold mixed with water in a Mister.
I carefully removed the stencil.
I trimmed the panel down for an A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch) card.
I used a gold Nuvo glitter marker to add a thin line of gold shimmer on the edges.
I added a sentiment in dark grey. The pattern of the stencil reminds me of a dream catcher, so I used a dream sentiment.
Inside I added a simple detail by stamping in the dark grey and a purple similar to those on the front.
