Softly Stenciled

Today was a very busy day with babysitting grandsons and attending a bridal shower, but I got to spend some time in my stamp room this afternoon and decided to work with stencils, as I’ve been seeing a lot of them used on backgrounds lately!  The first stenciled layer on this card was done with a beautiful Tim Holtz stencil Gothic, using Broken China and Wilted Violet distress oxides and water.  I found the image of a woman on Pinterest, printed it out and made my own stencil with it, and layered that on next, sponging around it with Iced Spruce distress oxide ink.  I then laid a scripty stencil over her and sponged on more ink for added interest.  Black Soot oxide softened the edges of my panel.

I had this colored floral image (Charmed by Altenew) already in my stash and stamped a script stamp over the flowers, then softened the cut edges with Black Soot distress oxide.  I cut it apart in order to layer it with pieces of foam tape.

The last step was to heat-emboss in black the sentiment from Altenew’s Label Love, one of my favorite sentiment sets!  A base card of lavender completes my card!
