Following on from the stamping idea, in the last couple of blogs, I thought I would touch on the idea of combining stamps with stencils. Both of these tools are very versatile, easy to use and can be used in many different types of projects including mixed media, home decor, scrapbooking and card making.
I decided to make a quick and easy card that is quite striking in its simplicity and perfect for a celebration.
I mixed together Cosmic Shimmer Ultramarine glitter and clear Texture Paste which I then smoothed through a Creative Expressions A5 Stencil - Endless Bubbles onto a piece of A5 card to create the background. You can cut this down to suit the size of the card you want to use. This gives a lovely iridescent 3d effect to the card without overpowering the focal image. I used Versafine Onyx Black to stamp Sleek Designs stamp Dancing Girl onto a piece of white card and coloured in the bubbles. I matted the dancing girl image onto a piece of blue cardstock, matted them both onto the textured background and mounted the three layers onto a white card.
