Stencil cards

Hello friends, welcome back!! I have never posted back to back but this time I am surprising myself. This would be third consecutive day for my post!

Today I played along with my stencil and I loved it! First one came out so well that I made another one as well.

Here we go.....

First made the background with Tim Holtz distress ink and then using stencil made the butterfly and the leaves. Added sentiment from SSS You Can Do Anything stamp set.

 This I mounted on a black card base and then on the distressed white card stock. Finished off with the twine. The black cardstock has a flap so that underneath message can be written.

Sending this for

Peek-a-Boo Designs Challenge#7 and Blog Hop (Stencil is something I have it since couple of years and the sentiment stamp is new)

Now for the second one.

This one is again using the same stencil but different images. Distressed the background before using the stencil. Used layer of black card stock and Papericious PP. Finished off with sentiment from SSS Big Birthday Wishes set and few pearls.

Card with Spotlight Technique

I usually do not post on weekday but today is an exception. I had some time in hand and made this card using spotlight technique.

First I stamped the image of the flowers from Inspired By Stamping stamp set. Then highlighted the topmost portion of the image using another piece of cardstock overlapping the underlying image.
Using a pen created faux stitching on both the highlighted panel and the base cardstock.
Background is created using ghosting technique with versamark resist. Those little hearts are from SSS Heartfelt Notes set. Coloring is done by Tim Holtz distress ink and sentiment is from Mudra stamps using Memento tuxedo black ink.

Mounted this on a green card base.

Usually spotlight technique has highlight on a very small portion of the image and mine is almost 50% of the image still I wanted to make it this way.

A closer view

Do let me know your thoughts on my wok it helps me a lot.
