Hello! I'm on the STAMPlorations blog today in the Stencil Sunday spot with these four cards.
Stencils are so versatile - you can add layers and layers to build up patterns, or you can do some selective stencilling for a Clean and Simple look, which is what I've gone for here. For an even quicker result, I made each pair of backgrounds in one swoop.
I placed my Tribal Triangles stencil over a double front sized card (European A5 in my case), did some partial stencilling with Distress Oxides, then cut the card in half.
I had a couple of Little Monsters in my stash so I coloured them with coordinating inks, then added sentiments.
This one uses the Everyday Sentiments dies, and the next one uses the sentiments from Big Monsters.
For a feminine version I used the Dots and Dashes stencil with pink and yellow inks.
As before, I chopped the piece of card in two to make two card fronts.
I like to personalise baby cards, so I cut some letters from some smooshed card using Uppercase Alphabet Plate and Lowercase Alphabet plate, lined them up and secured them with some washi tape before adding glue to the backs and gluing them in place.
This one is for the ready-made stash.
I channelled my inner Maria, using offcut negatives for a bit of tone-on-tone texture.
