Blended Stencil

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


I have made this card by starting with a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and taping my stencil down on top of it. Then I used Distress ink to blend the colors onto the panel. I took off the stencil and added a little more color to the top of it. This was going to be a 5 x 7 card, so the stencil was not quite as big as the panel, so I blended the colors into the top and bottom to get the stencil to fade off a little bit.

I laid the stencil back on top of the panel and added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen to the inked areas. I cut it down so that it would be slightly smaller than my card, and added a piece of Stampin' Up! Rich Razzleberry cardstock underneath and then adhered that to a white card base. I stamped a Happy Graduation sentiment from Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday to the card. And finally added some little Swarovski crystals to the card.

Hope you enjoyed this one, and give something like it a try.
