Brand Ambassador Inspiration - Stenciled Shadow-techniques


I always love to discover new ideas how to use my supplies!

When  I saw some cards with a stamped off-set technique I got the idea to try this also with stencils.
So there we go!


For my first card I used the "Christmas Folk Snowflake Stencil" (was released one year ago).
I added the light grey pumic stone Distress Oxide Ink with my blending brush.
Then I moved the Stencil a bit, adhered it again with the tape and added the red fired brick with another brush.

To finish the cad I cut my stenciled paper fitting to my cardbase, adhered both ends of a piece of ribbbon on the backside, Then I added the stamped sentiment from the new released "Festive Sentiments Outlined" Set on a smaller piece of cardstock, I cut it in a size, fitting to the snowflake pattern. 
In this sentiment I coloured two of the letters with a marker and added an almost white (kind of creamy) enamel dot.
The layer is adhered on the cardbase with a 2 mm dimensional tape.

For the other card I used the technique with a little switch.
I stenciled the snowflakes of the "Let it snow" Stencil in tumbled glass Oxide Ink - again I used my brushes. Then I added Distress micro Glaze on the same position with a small blending tool (I store this one in the glaze container).
Removed and cleaned the stencil, put it back with a little movement and fixed it on the paper again. Then I added the darker shade blueprint sketch Oxide Ink.
The shadow is now more "behind" the first layer of colour.
To finish the card I framed my snowflake layer with a light blue paper and added a strip of the same colour in front with the stamped sentiment of the "Stunning Snowflakes". I also added some white snowflake sequins.
