After the summer,it's difficult for us to retourn to the routine, especially because on vacation we can sleep all we want, and in memory of those long naps, I have prepared two cards with one of the new stencils.
In both of them I have used the same stencils in different ways, for the cards background I used the flowers stencil "Stencil Deco Background 093 Floral composition", and for the text I used the stencil with the sentence I love sleep from the stencil "Stencil Deco Text 050 Sweet Dreams Princess"
For the first card I created the background with the stencil paste on the dark gray cardboard, I really like the effect of the white paste on the dark background, because this paste has a fine finish.
On the heavy paper I have applied medium transparent gel (or any material that dries translucent, glue, ect…) using the mini stars stencil “Stencil Deco Festivities 035 Background + Merry Christmas”, once dry I added color with the rosa and violett ink, I leave the strars are white, the original color of the cardboard. I have cut this piece of cardboard in circle shape, on which I have glued the sleepy kitten, which it is a colored stamp.
Finally, on a piece of the same dark gray cardboard background, I have applied the stencil paste with the sentence "Stencil Deco Text 050 Sweet Dreams Princess" using stencil. Como se aprecia en las fotos del paso a paso, cubro con cinta de carrocero alrededor del motivo que quiero usar, para no añadir a mi trabajo otros motivos del stencil.
For the second card, I have created the background on white cardboard, with the "Stencil Deco Background 093 Floral composition", and made a gradient with yellow and green ink. I have glued three gray cardboard rectangles, sanded and painted in green, in one of them I have applied the same sentence with the stencil paste, on another rectangle I hit a dragon, which it is also a colored stamp.
I have glued the card elements to the bottom with foam (eva rubber, adhesive pads…) to create more relief.
Despite being similar the cards in form and content, It's interesting how with the same stencill, using different techniques, we get so different results. I encourage you to experiment, as you can see the uses of a stencil are almost infinite.
