Stencil and Spray – the perfect combo

Stencil and Spray – the perfect combo

Picket Fence Studios has some wonderful stencils and I have been looking forward to playing with the Random Dots stencil. This card came together so easily.

To create this card I used an A2 sized piece of white cardstock. I taped the cardstock and stencil to each other so they wouldn’t separate. Then I used some wide 3M masking tape and taped off all but the top section. In a box (to contain the mess) I sprayed some Abandoned Coral Distress Spray over the stencil. Then I used a paper towel to wipe the spray off of the stencil. I gave it a bit to dry then I moved the tape.

I repeated, moving it two more times to expose the middle and bottom sections. I used Mermaid Lagoon and Peeled Paint sprays. I originally intended to use it as is, but it wasn’t as neat as I wanted it to be so…. I cut two 1/4 inch strips from the card which is where I inserted the patterned paper.

First, I adhered the sprayed pieces on to another A2 size card front and then added My Favorite Things striped paper.

I used the I love it! stamp set for the sentiment — adore this sentiment.  I stamped it using black ink on white cardstock and added a black cardstock mat. Foam tape behind it added some dimension. Then I adhered the card front to a card base.

Thanks for stopping by today!

    A really cute sentiment and love the effect of the Mermaid Lagoon and Peeled Paint sprays on the background of the stencil.

    I have been using stencils lately, and really like the effect as a background. I like your dots…

    Pretty background with the random dots stencil! Love the contrast with the b&w details!
