Stencil highlighting technique

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to my blog. 

Today, I have a video in my channel and its a technique video using Craftreat stencils. This is my favourite stencil technique and I love making cards using this technique. I am very happy to share this with all of you. 

The stencil used here are Side feathered peacock and for the background Fire works. I use Altenew dye inks for this technique. Any dye ink will work here and any colour pencil. The lighter shade of ink the better the highlighting. This works with any stencil that has a large space to colour and has no intricate design.

Mixed media box

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to my blog and remember to follow…..

Today, I have a mixed media box using image from My besties and paper from Bestie elf paper pack. 

This image was so fun to colour. Of late I fuzzy cut the image for my work and ended up doing the same here. For the box, I used chalk paints for the base and to colour the embellishments too. Chalks paints and chipboards are from Expression crafts

I stenciled the side of the box (picture in the end of the post)… I also added some moussee to the embellishments for some shine and texture. To finish the box, I added some gem and pearl embellishment.

Simple cards and tag using one stamp set

Hello everyone

Welcome back….

Today, I have made 2 cards and a tag using one stamp set and inks from Tubby Craft. These are simple and quick cards to make. I have different backgrounds for these cards but used the same image. 

Materials used:

1. Stamp – Unicorn dreams

2. Inks

    a. Jet black

    b. Lead grey

    c. Aqua blue

    d. Lemon yellow

    e. Lavendar violet

    f. Lawn green

3. Cardstock – white, black, yellow

4. Colour pencils

5. Gemstones

6. Acrylic block


Card 1

 
For this card, I first stenciled the background and used Lead grey ink. I stamped the image onto a white card stock and coloured using pencils. Using double sided foam adhesive, I added the images to the card base. I added the sentiment and some gemstones as well. 
To finish the card, I added it to a top fold black note card.

 

 
 
 
Card 2

 
For my second card, I used a different background using stencils and inks. I added ink to the background where it fades towards the bottom of the card base. I coloured and added the image to the base along with the sentiment and gemstones.. I added the card base to a top fold yellow note card.

 

 
 
 
Tag
 
 
This is super quick and easy tag. Using a stencil and inks from tubby craft, I inked the background. Using jet black ink, I stamped the image and coloured it. Using foam adhesive, I added the image and the sentiment. To finish the tag, I added it to a black card stock and used a twine.

 

 
 
I hope you all liked the cards and tag.. List of tubby craft retailers are mentioned below
