Cut Away Wish

Saturday, February 1, 2014

Well, couldn't leave those stencils alone :)  This time I've used one stencil over another.

First off, the card base was cut to a standard A2 size.  Then I placed the leaf stencil over the card base and inked it with some Hero Arts ink.  Next, the tile stencil was laid over top of the first stencil and I used an India ink pen to ink through the little holes in the stencil.

The sentiment was slightly curved to match the stem and simply stamped in black.  Next I drew a pencil line along the edge where I wanted the leaves cut out.  Then, I used a craft knife to cut the edge including the fussy cutting around the leaves and... done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  SU! crumb cake
Ink:  Hero Arts soft brown and Versafine onyx black
Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp Tilted Banner Sayings
All the other stuff:  Simon Says Stamp Leaves stencil, TCW mini tile texture, Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen in white, craft mat, craft knife, ruler, pencil, sponge

  1. Lee-Anne, this curved leaf is so the little tiles. I can't do anything with a craft knife. I've tried but always make a jagged mess.

  2. All I can say is WOW. I like the out-of-the-box too! The whole card is so creative and so elegant! It's a keeper!

  3. Such a great design Lee-Anne. Haven't tried the stencil over stencil yet, but it's on my list - you have aced it here! :) Love the cut out edge. Loll xx

  4. Oh, this is fabulous! Wonderful take on the sketch!
