Two, Nautically

Hi! I’m here with a quick post with two bright stenciled cards.

First up, I have card using the ARTplorations Chevron Crazy stencil.

I printed with the inked up stencil with blue watercolor paint, printed the background and then stenciled with Gelatos.

I used a STAMPlorations stamp from the Explore set.

This card was inspired by Becca Cruger’s Birthday Bash Mood board. Happy Birthday, Becca!

Second, I have another card using the Chevron Crazy stencil.

I did some reverse stenciling and used the inked up stencil from my first card in this post. I squashed the inky stencil onto the mixed media paper, covered with a bit of scrap paper and rubbed the back of the stencil. Then I stenciled black ink into the negative spaces and heat embossed with clear embossing powder multiple times.

 The seashell is a digital image from STAMPlorations. For now, I’ve left this without a sentiment. I’d like to play this card at Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog’s Challenge: Nautical/By The Sea.
