My friend Hilary, gifted me two uniko stencils. One I had a matching stamp set for and the other is a lovely chain of flowers. Hilary also has both stencils, so we decided to have an go at each using and sharing on the same day cards we created with the stencils.
First up Uniko's Fun Flowers, its a spray mask but I went in a different direction...
I started with a panel of black card stock. I used white pigment ink to ink up the background of the stencil piece, then added tumbled glass, kitch flamingo, and twisted citron inks through the detail portion of the stencil. Once done I added clear embossing powder and set it. I wanted a strong focal point, so I traced out and cut one of the flower clusters on black card, added white pigment ink, heat embossed in white as well. I love the texture that gave with the bits of black peeking through. I finished it with more DOX inks in the same shades as the base. A sentiment was added and a trio of gems.
My second card is much more straight forward, I gold embossed the matching stamp which was already in my stash, then colored the leaves using the stencil. Added a sentiment and placed it on a colored base.
Thank you so much Hilary. I can't wait to see what you made. You can head over to Hilary's Blog here.
