Nostalgic Stencils



I'm so excited about the set of the stencils Judith Kim, Craftwell Designer created to celebrate National Crafting Month.  My favorite image of the group is the rose.


There are 4 stencils needed to complete the image of the rose.  I cut my stencils using my electronic cutting machine.  Once you have the stencils ready, the real fun commences.
Choose your markers.  I chose 3 similar shades of blue (Light, Medium, Dark) and a mid to dark leaf green.


Get your eBrush and with the lightest shade of your chosen color for your rose and with your stencil in place being careful of overspray, lightly fill the color as desired.  (I taped my stencil in place as you can see in the image on the far left below)
Carefully, line up the next stencil for the medium shade and spray.  Repeat for the dark and then the last stencil for the leaves.  Yes, you will be adding a layer of color over areas that have already been sprayed.  That's ok.  My samples are a little dark... we can thank the weather and the lighting in my room today... click on each photo to see a larger image.







Once all the spraying has been completed, you can cut and mount as desired as I have done for this project (see image below).
Background paper is from a Graphic45 collection called French Country (retired).  I've been hoarding the sheets in the slab!  But this striped piece was perfect for this card which will be a gift for someone special.



I hope you'll give this a try.  Stenciling with the ebrush is so much fun and roses come in such an array of colors you can create a whole rose garden with this stencil set.

Be sure to stop by the Craftwell Blog for more ideas and ways to use your eBrush.  And please, feel free to drop by my blog on a regular basis for some crafting fun!  Enjoy a crafting experience today!
