AECP - Celebration: Stencil Technique Project
I have to say right off the bat that I absolutely love the layered Dahlia stencils from Altenew, it creates such a beautiful piece. I had a hard time cutting in to my finished stenciled images. lol
I created four panels in total only two of which I made into cards so far.
I started off with Neehna white and doll pink card stock and cut it down to 5½ x 5½ panels. I had the idea to use a background stamp and do a resist technique before I used the stencil.
So prepared my panels with my antistatic powder tool and went on to stamp the love is background stamp on to each of the four panels with versa mark ink. I heat embossed it using clear powder as well as white embossing powder.
For the first Layer of the stencil which is Layer A , I went in with my blending too and Rubbelite ink from the Cherry Blossom ink collection For the first layer of the leafs I used crushed olive distress ink and my blending tool. It was a bit challenging not getting the green where I didn't want it.
For the second layer -Which is Layer B- I went in with Razzelberry and Meowed lawn. Once these colors were added it just popped. I really love the look this stencil creates.
Here for the pink version I used only the two shades of pink and left the leafs out, It give it a different look. I also had embossed this particular panel using clear embossing powder.
On to the creating of the cards,
For the pink stenciled background I created it into a standard A2 card, as I thought the design worked well for that. I cut the panel down
to 5¼ x 3 7/8 ( Sorry I do not know why certain measurements don't shrink down) I layered it on to a black panel that was just slightly bigger allowing for just a little edging around to pop the panel I popped it up with foam tape on to the card base. For the sentiments I used a Poppy Stamp die and an My favorite things stamp along with banner die. I had these all ready from a previous project. The make die was layered three times together to create dimension .
I linked to some of the products that were still available.
To finish it off I added some Pretty Pink Posh Crystal drops.
For the second card, I created a larger card as I loved how the stenciling with embossing turned out so much I couldn't bare cut into it. So I created a 5½ x 5½ card from shimmer Bazzill cardstock and cut the panel down twice once first to 5 1/8 x 51/8 and then I die cut the middle out using the lawn fawn stitched square dies. I again added black under the panel to make it pop I popped up the outer frame with foam tape and added the die cut square back in place flat. I like how it added some extra interest.
For the sentiment I used the Altenew Happy Birthday die, which I cut out three time and adhered together.
I finished the card off by adding some Tonic Agua shimmer pen onto the sentiment, as well as adding the Pretty Pink Posh crystal droplets again to add a little glitter.
I had so much fun and learned allot through the Celebrations: Stenciling technique class through Altenew academy I highly recommend taking it and checking out all the other wonderful courses and products they have to offer.
