Stencil Sunday - BIG & BOLD and Soft & Pretty!

 Happy Sunday!

It's been a while since I did a Stencil Sunday feature, so I thought I'd share a couple more cards I made using the 2 new stencils released on Friday. If you missed the release day fun, you can catch up HERE.

For my first card today I have used Tropical Leaf #2 and Squared. I've been wanting to try this technique for a while using two stencils and took it a little further by creating kind of spotlight effect.

First I used Crushed Olive Distress Oxide ink through the monstera leaf. I then positioned the squared stencil and inked through with Forest Moss Distress Oxide ink. 

I love a bit of fussy cutting, so trimmed out my leaf. I then decided to use the squared stencil on my base card. So I positioned where I wanted the leaf to go and placed the squared stencil over the top to line up the squares. I taped down one edge and removed the leaf to stencil the background using the same Forest Moss ink.

It was then easy to line up and adhere the leaf using foam adhesive. I thought the Wish Big sentiment from Simply Said Blocks III was quite apt to pair with this grand monstera leaf! 

For my second card today I have gone soft and pretty pastels using Scattered Polka Hearts to create a congratulations card.

I love the small detail blending brushes you can get, they make for easy ink application when you want to create a rainbow effect with small stencils. I used a variety of Altenew light shades of ink to randomly colour the heart background.

I then stamped, fussy cut and adhered the floral heart from Always & Forever to the panel using foam adhesive. The sentiment is from Everyday Sentiments and I stamped it in a medium grey so it stood out, but wasn't quite as harsh as black.

That's all from me today. Though with all the rainy weather we have had this weekend, I have made quite a few cards I will be sharing over the coming days!
