Hi everyone – How are you doing? I hope this post finds you doing well and healthy. I wanted to share a new card with you – I am thankful for you, your friendship, and your crafty support! It truly means so much to me! Coloring is truly an outlet for me and it relaxes me! My card today is using the stencil of the month from Brutus Monroe – Wood Slice. I love this stencil, it is full of many possibilities! If you love stencils, you may want to consider joining the stencil of the month club! How fun!
For today’s card I am using the stencil of the month, as well as the beautiful Love you Floral stamp set from Brutus Monroe. I love this stamp set! Check it out…. I used one corner of the stamp for this piece. I inked up one corner using Brutus Monroe Detail Raven ink. I love the crisp stamped image I get using this ink! I colored in my florals using my zig clean color brush markers. I then added details to the nooks and crannies using my Arteza colored pencils.
I then created a mask for the one corner floral image and placed the stencil on top of my panel. I used a combination of antique linen and Vintage photo distress oxide inks to add color to my stencil. I used my blending brushes. I concentrated the darker color on the bottom corner and went in with the lighter color as I got closer to the flowers. I then added metallic gold splatters to the panel and set it aside to dry.
I chose the Thankful for You sentiment from the amazing set – Super Sentimental, Brutus Monroe. I inked the sentiment on a piece of vellum in Detail Raven Ink and heat embossed it using a clear embossing powder. I then adhered the vellum sentiment strip to the card panel. I used clear tape on the back and did add small amounts of clear glue behind the black sentiment words. I added stickles in gold to the top right floral image for added sparkles!
