Good Friday Morning Ladies,
I have decided that you all deserve a week off, well kind of, I am not going to set a challenge as such but I would like you all to try something NEW, a new style or a new technique, something that you keep seeing on Pinterest that you love the look of but haven't tried yet because it's easier to stick to what you know! If you do have a go at something new I will share it next Sunday as usual, we will ne home then too.
It was looking through my photos that made me think about suggesting this instead of a specific challenge, I have so many screen shots of cards I have seen and loved but not gotten around to having a go at.
Today's card is one of those, I have seen loads of cards that are made using 'Shadow Stamping' but shadow stencilling isn't really a thing, but I think it looks quite effective.
I took a piece of Kraft card and an Aall & Create stencil, I taped the stencil down and sponged through with White ink, making sure I had good coverage so that any colour I add on top really pops. I then moved the stencil ever so slightly, literally just a tiny bit up and across. I then re-secured the stencil and went to town with a selection of colours that looked fun together. I slowly and carefully removed the stencil and this is the result ! I think that little touch if white almost makes the droplets (or whatever those shapes are) look 3D. I wonder how effective it would be with a black shadow?? You could try glittered or metallic shadows too. I added a sentiment stamped on vellum, finishing with some complimentary resin dots.
I look forward to seeing what you have a go at,
Love and hugs to all of you,
