Stencil Techniques

Welcome back,

Today I am sharing my newest card, which required a little bit of mess!

The ink was applied directly on to my Buffalo Plaid stencil which I then spritzed with water. I then flipped it over to my watercolour cardstock to create the patterned background. I then used mirror cardstock to cut out the Framed Congrats Die. The centrepiece is a Fine Bouquet Die, in this step it felt like me and my craft tweezers playing jigsaw. I chose black for the outline of the flower to give the card some depth. I love how the white flower is standing out from the busy background.

Following up from my first post, I recently looked up the meaning of the colour pink. Interestingly, pink has a strong psychological impact on us and is a sign of hope. It is a positive colour, inspiring warm and comforting feelings, a sense that everything will be okay. It is a symbol of friendship and affection.

Now I understand why that pink moves me so much lately; perhaps subconsciously I am hoping that things will all work out.
