Stencilling

Hi everyone. Less is More and The Friday Mashup are hosting challenges that have to do with stencilling. Here is what I came up with!

The stencil is from Penny Black and I used pan pastels to color it in. Yellow and red are combined to get the bright orange color for the poppies.

Stitched border is done using a Lil Inker Designs die and the "hello" sentiment is from MFT. I die cut the stitches first then placed the stencil over the cardstock and went to town. This is a one layer card and has lots of white space.  This second one, is a bit different.






I used a Memory box die and created my own stencils with a bit of left over acetate. Then I got out some modeling paste and slopped it on some watercolor paper.  Once dried I added color using water color paints. I did stamp the sentiments from Simon Says Stamps prior to adding the blue. I love the texture on this one but it's not my favorite, so I created the top one while I was at it.

ETA: adding this into the AAA Cards challenge of paste and/or stencils.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!

2 AWESOME cards Laurie ... sorry I can't pick a favourite as they are both so clever and unique. The colours on the first one are blended brilliantly and I love the delicate colour and texture on the second one. Thanks so much for linking up and playing along at both AAA Cards and LIM. Sarah x

I love the texture on your blue card but the first card is my fave. It's beautiful, a splash of summer on a card.
Thanks for sharing with us.

The poppy card is beautiful but I like poppies. The second card is very unique - love how you "slopped" some stuff on. LOL. I am trying to "think out of the box" more.
