Kindness - stencilling

Kindness is the true beauty. Two stencils from Simon Says Stamp combined to make a flower in a single layer card

Putting It Together

I love stencils and have a bit of a collection. When I saw the challenge to use more than one, I knew it was for me. I decided to do it as a single layer card as well.

I started with the Carolyn stencil and Coral Reef using a stencilling brush, using the centre to create the flower. A brush adds ink softer than a blender. If you start in one spot and sweep out, you can get an easy ombre blend as well.

I switched to Debra to add in leaves with Green Apple and Duckling.

I love the way these combined.

I used Slate to stamp a sentiment from a Gina K Designs set that's now retired.

Inside, I stamped another sentiment and a flower and leaf from the same set.
