STAMPlorations April Stencil Challenge
Have you had a chance to play along in The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge? Today is the 6th day I am participating in challenge! I have found it to be great motivation to work on my coloring.
I was inspired by the above sketch from My Favorite Things. And I knew I needed to create a stencil for it. I did that by using some Transparency Film cut down to A2 card size. Then I brought out a star die cut. After that I ran both through my die cut machine. This creates a nice reusable stencil. It is sturdy and can be used over again.
I used one of the nurses that are available as a freebie on that blog post link in the previous paragraph. For the coloring, I used both alcohol markers and colored pencils. If you haven't yet visited my YouTube channel. There is a video showing how I use colored pencils and blend the colors out. Here is the link for that. Once, I was done coloring him in, I fussy cut him out. Then I ran him through my Xyron machine, so I didn't have to worry about getting a good amount of adhesive down. I then brought out my homemade stencil and distress ink. Using my Amazon makeup brush I applied the ink onto the card base. When that was done, I put the nurse on top of that area. Then I used my water bottle to activate the oxide part of the ink. To finish the card off, I cut the sentiment out and backed it up with 3M foam tape. And then I scattered the embellishments around my card.
