Today on the Bee Crafty blog I am sharing with you a card I made this week.
One of the advantages of having more time at home is it gives me the opportunity to try out some of those techniques I have seen other people do and have never gotten around to trying myself so this week I had a go on the spur of the moment at using my brushos through a stencil...
As this wasn't planned I unfortunately didn't take step by step photos but I will try to explain what I did.
To start with I used the Mandala 1 inkable on a piece of stamping card, I put some clear gel through with a palette knife then sprinkled brusho powders on top (turquoise, leaf green and emerald green). I let it sink in for a few moments then very carefully removed the stencil (which I then printed onto some extra card a couple of times). I gave it a gentle spritz of water then allowed it to dry...
Before the gel was totally dry I decided to experiment by sprinkling some gold embossing powder onto areas and heating with my heat tool. This worked in some places so I added a bit more to create a few small areas of gold.
After this I cut around the flower shape of the main stenciling, then took one of the extra pieces I had printed and cut around the circular part, I inked around both sets of edges using black archival ink then layered them onto the faintest print I had made.
Once these were all adhered together I used a green Pitt Pen by Faber Castell to add some shading...
I wanted a bit more interest along the other edge of the card so used one of the texture border stamps with clear ink and gold embossing powder.
Finally I stamped one of the sentiments from the Everyday Sentiments 1 XL onto black card and embossed in gold before cutting it into a banner shape and applying it to the card using foam tape...
