It's time for a new a challenge over at Muse and this week it's my turn to be your designer.
The idea at Muse is to draw inspiration from the designer's creation each week. Hopefully I've given you some scope with this one....stencilling, ink blending, the colours, floral design, bold sentiment, etc.
I used to think stencils were quite boring until I discovered that they can be used to create some fabulous effects with numerous techniques. They are an inexpensive product to add to your stash too, so that's a good enough reason for me and I've bought quite a few now.
For this one I chose three Distress Inks that I thought would blend together well, taped my stencil to a white cardstock panel and blended through with my sponge blending tools. Using my mini MISTI I then stamped the bold sentiment in black, twice to ensure a good impression. I then mounted the stencilled panel onto a piece of plum coloured cardstock to co-ordinate with the colour in the centre of the design. This was then adhered flat to the card base.
- Stencil: The Crafters Workshop - Mini Daisy Chain
- Ink: Distress Ink - Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers; Versafine - Onyx Black
- Stamp: MFT - Brushstroke Birthday
- Coloured cardstock from stash
Thanks so much for popping by, and hopefully I've inspired you to play along at Muse this week. It's a great little challenge as it is voted for by your fellow participants.
If you're in the UK I hope you've been enjoying a nice bank holiday weekend. The weather down here in Devon has gone downhill since the lovely day we had on Saturday so I hope it's better where you are, or you're managing to make the most of the long weekend.
I'll be back tomorrow evening with information about the next CAS challenge at Happy Little Stampers so I hope to see you then.
