Stencil Sunday


Sarah G on the Uniko blog today to share some cards that I have made featuring the lattice stencil from Uniko's latest release which is.....awesome :)

On this card I inked through the stencil with versamark and embossed it in a combination of white and gold embossing powder to create a variegated and slightly distressed look. I then inked with a range of distress inks in shades of blue.  I gold embossed the mandala from Marvellous Mendhi in gold on navy cardstock and fussy cut it out and popped a sentiment from Block Sentiments over the top.  I think this card has a Moroccan feel to it :)

Here, I found a piece of watercoloured cardstock spritzed through the stencil with a range of blue inks.  The beautiful snowdrop is stamped on acetate and I painted on the back with acrylic paints.  When I fussy cut it out, it looked lovely against the vibrant blues.

On my third card I inked through the stencil with a range of distress oxides in blues and greens and then die cut a square from the centre to create a raised panel.  I combined it with the striking gerbera which is large enough to stand out against the patterned background.

Finally for today, I inked through the lattice stencil lightly with Antique Linen distress ink.  I wanted to create quite a distressed look with a subtle fade out.  I then inked through a leaf stencil with some rich browns and oranges and combined with a dragonfly (free with a magazine) which has been gold embossed on vellum.  A few splatters and a sentiment from Originally Organic complete the design.

I hope you like the different looks that the lattice stencil can create.  Whether bold and vibrant or subtle and distressed, it provides a lovely backdrop for lots of stamps and sentiments.  

See you again soon for another stencil sunday x
