Stenciling, Coloring and a Little Foiling

Stenciling, Coloring and a Little Foiling

Hey Crafties, hope your day is going well! Today, I have a card that I finished last night and I really love how it turned out. To make it, I did some stenciling, Copic coloring and added a bit of gold foiling.

I recently picked up Paper Rose’s “Distressed Brick” stencil and it is so cool, because the pattern isn’t perfect bricks which lends a more realistic look. When I look at laid bricks on buildings, they’re never all perfectly aligned. And, in crafting, I don’t think of a perfect outcome. It’s the charm of a handmade gift that it’s NOT perfect, but that’s another subject for another post! Let’s get to the card LOL!

Stenciling, Coloring and a Little Foiling

See how pretty those bricks look! I tried to match the color for the bricks background with my flowers. To do that, I chose Simon’s “Cherry” Pawsitively Saturated Ink pad. Also, I stenciled the background on the card base itself cause I was going for less dimension. I used my blending brush with more pressure on the bottom right and less going upwards. It looks more like an ombre feel which I absolutely adore!

With the flowers, I used Copic markers. The colors for the red flower was: R89, R39, R27 and R24. And for the pink flowers: RV09, RV6, RV10 and RV00. The leaves were YG67, YG17, YG03 and YG01. I used the flicking motion to color the leaves. For a more dramatic effect, I concentrated more coloring with the darkest marker on the centers of the flowers.

Another thing I really love about this card is that the flowers comes from 2 different stamp sets from 2 different companies! I am a big fan of mixing and matching products from several companies. I used Simon Says Stamps “Beautiful Flowers” stamp and die set. This set is my absolute favorite of all their stamps. I have had so much fun and success coloring these flowers on past cards.

And I used Pretty Pink Posh’s “Peonies” stamp/die set. There’s also a layering stencil set that I have as well.

The foiling part comes from Pink Fresh Studio’s Foiled Sentiments Ephemera Pack that I’ve used A LOT! My craft space is small and I don’t always feel like breaking out the machines to hot foil so have these already made up and cut out is perfect!

Lastly, I added a few clear gems from Hero Arts + a few details with my white gelly roll pen!
