STAMPlorations April Stencil Challenge
For today's card, I began by doing a little stamp surgery. This cute little narwhal comes with a sentiment attached. So I cut it apart. Then I created the stencil. I used the Avery Elle Waves Die and some junk mail. That's my way of doing my part to recycle. And then before I started stamping onto the cardstock piece, I stamped onto a couple of Post-Its. Then I fussy cut the narwhals out, those creating a mask. Next, I stamped onto the cardstock. When I was done stamping, I put the masks on top of both of the narwhals and then brought out the homemade stencil. I applied the ink by using a makeup brush.
Then I moved onto coloring the narwhals. For that I used my alcohol marker and colored pencils. The pencils were used for the horn and the color was blended using my Fantastix and baby oil.
