Simon Says Stencil It!!


Hi,

So I am being challenge heavy this week.simply because this week they are hard to resist.

SimonSaysStamp Wednesday challenge is - Simon Says Stencil it...I love stencils, so this was a perfect challenge for me.

I have been experimenting with modelling paste and stencils..this is the first card I have 'shown' using the paste and I love it!!

I chose to use my fave Aspen Trees stencil by The Crafter's Workshop I thought it would make a great base for a card for Hubby's Godparents who are quite outdoorsy!

Once the paste was dry, I overlaid the stencil again and inked it up using Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I added a strip of scrap paper from my scrap box that coordinated with my new Pink Petticoat Happy Camper digital stamp. I used a Pink Petticoat paper for the pattern on the camper van and retouched it in using Photoshop Elements - a new trick for me :) I didn't use the sentiment that came with the stamp, instead I retyped it, printed it out, punched it and then added some dots to match the scrap paper.

Here is a photo so you can see the dimension of the paste.

Fun to do and super easy, it only takes a few hours to dry and if you are impatient you can heat dry, but be warned the effect is not as good if you heat dry.
