Welcome to my portion of this fun Dream Weaver Stencil blog hop.
I am balloon happy right now. October is balloon fiesta in Albuquerque, which is an hour south of Santa Fe. Hundreds of balloons in the air on a warm fall day is one of the most colorful things I have ever seen!
Here I have created two different examples using the balloon stencil (LL3003).
Stamp A Mania makes the balloon stamp (SF6605K). The card has been painted with Twinkling H20 watercolors. I stenciled the balloon with Vivid inks and stencil brushes -- remember to have a brush for each color group to keep them clean. Cut out the balloon and use dimensional adhesive to place it on the card.
The balloon was stenciled on white card stock with Ranger Distress Inks and cut out. I then cut a piece of black paper to create shadow and set the balloon from the busy map background.
thistle (LL3001) and fern (LM2006) with Ranger Distress Inks and stencils brushes. The tag on the left, I stenciled the ferns in first, using varying shades of green to create a bit of depth to the image. Then I added the thistles in the back. The right tag is three thistles, layered as I stenciled, no masking. The beauty of stencils is that you can see where you have already put ink. This allows you to work around that part, keeping it in the foreground. To finish I added a bit of ribbon by May Arts..
