Overflowing Florals

Good Morning
Today's card was a fun one to create as I was playing along with a challenge to do some 'Faux Tearing using stencils' at Splitcoast Stampers.
What an interesting look it gave to the background...I should have taken a picture before I stamped over it.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock.  Using some copy paper, I tore strips and laid them over my cardstock with some repositionable glue.
  • I laid the  stencil over the torn pieces of paper and inked it up.  The colours of ink I used were:  Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and some Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink.
  • I removed the stencil and all the strips to reveal the background.
  • I some leftover ink on my blending brushes to ink the edges.
  • Next, I placed the piece into my Misti and stamped the Large Floral Background over the inked piece with some black ink.
  • I die cut the sentiment from some black and then some white cardstock and glued them together.
  • I die cut the word shadow right from the middle of the inked panel and glued them together.
  • I glue it all onto an A2 card base, then pop dotted the sentiment into place over the flowers.

Here is the stencil I used:

This is an interesting idea Karen and it has worked brilliantly with the spots stencilled and then the added flowers and a great combination of colours..the layered up sentiment shows up well too. x
