Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using a stencil that was released last month. I love a stencil, you can do so much with them and today I decided to play with some Paper Glaze.
The stencil that I am using today is Momma And Baby Giraffes A2. It's a lovely stencil and because of it's subject, I thought I would use some colours that you might see in an African sunset.
I started by taking the stencil and a piece of black cardstock and I taped the stencil from behind. Using a Mixed Media Spatula I applied all three colours from Paper Glaze Ombre Pumpkin Spices through it. I tried them on a separate panel with a more random spread of colour but I preferred the tiered look that I got on this card panel that you see today. So, I applied the gold at the top, followed by the brown and then the beautiful red at the bottom.
I removed the stencil, cleaned it and the spatula and set the panel aside to dry.
Once it was dry, I trimmed it down and added it to a black top folding A2 card base using black Extra Wide Foam Tape. The sentiment is from I'll Always Pick You and it was stamped using Versamark Ink onto black cardstock. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set before trimming it out and adding it onto the panel, also with black Extra Wide Foam Tape.
A very quick and easy card to make but I love the pretty colours against the black cardstock. The gold in particular is stunning but always difficult to photograph! Thank you for joining me today, I hope that you have a wonderful day and I will be back soon with another card for you. Happy crafting!
