Quite simple no line watercolouring and stenciling on the card base.I could not click decent pictures as I had to post it immediately !

The flowers are from Renne Rose Stamp (Altenew).I watercolored them with the only technique that i know " no-line" colouring !The gold embossed sentiment is from Magnolias for her stamp set  (Altenew)

Cute birthday card !

Hello friends I am so glad I have something to share today ! I have been away from card making for a while and now I am struggling to come up with a decent card , So trying to get back the mojo by playing along few challenges.

The cute pigs are from MFT thanks to Anila I can play along their sketch challenge.

The card is  quite simple I  have followed the sketch to the T ;) Not much modifications. I have used my newest DO inks for blending and Mudra pixel stamp the grid,sentiment handwritten !

CrafTreat GD post - Part 2

Hello friends ! I am back with Part 2 of my GD Post. Thank you for the overwhelming response to part 1.I am so happy you all loved the cards .. Like the previous post l will share some more techniques to use stencils on cards.

1. Using stencil with Acetate  & texture paste

Have you tried stamping through stencils?

This beautiful Anemone flower has four layers. I did stamping for first layer while for 2 and 3 layered I applied texture paste on Acetate so the base layer is still visible and finally for the center i did gold heat embossing .

You can see the different layers in this image.

2. Using Paints and pigments with Stencil 

This lovely rose comes in three layers.

I mixed LSG magicals with white acrylic paint and applied through the stencil.

I kept the base layer lightest ,increasing the amount of pigment for next layers.
It is better to apply the paint using sponge rather than a brush (you can see the uneven texture !)

3. Gel and Glitter 

One more card using the Rose 2 Stencil. I skipped the base layer ,inked the second one and for third layered i applied a mix of ink,acrylic gel and loose glitter.

4. Using just the outlines 

I loved the modern look of the Lilly flower from Tiger lilly stencil.

For this card I traced just the outlines of the flowers with white gel pen using both layers on the stencil.

Colored them lightly with Prisma color pencils.

5. Heat embossing on vellum 

I have white heat embossed first layer of lillies and inked the vellum from back to make the second layer more visible.

One of the flower is popped using foam tape.

I drew just the outlines for the leaves and flowers in the background.I Thank Priya and team for giving me this opportunity.
