Stenciled Leaves

Stenciled Leaves Heather Telford

Today’s ‘hint of a rainforest’ card was made primarily with a couple of stencils from the new Happy Everything release.  I used watercolour paper in case I wanted to blend some colours but I could have stuck with smooth cardstock just as easily. I started by sponging Pear Tart ink through the Verdant stencil with a sponge, moved the stencil and sponged with Bamboo Leaves ink. I then switched to the Promenade stencil and sponged Sweet Plum ink on the hanging blooms and Olive Grove on their stems and leaves. I picked up Pear Tart, Olive Grove and Sweet Plum ink on a paint brush and flicked it happily across the panel before adding the sentiment in Olive Green ink. For a dark edge I ran the Bamboo leaves ink pad along the edges of the panel then matted with Olive Grove paper.

Supplies:

Stamps:  Cupcake Day (PB)
Stencils:  Promenade, Verdant (PB)
Inks:  Memento Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves, Olive Grove, Sweet Plum (Tsukineko)
Paper: Olive Grove Mix & Match paper (PB)Fabriano 100% cotton hot pressed watercolour paper

    I do like how you said you happily flicked ink on your card — it is a fun thing to do, isn’t it? Of course, even your flicking is artistic. 😉 Beautiful main panel, and I like how the burlap ribbon keeps it a little rustic.

  5. Oh wow! This card certainly makes my heart smile!

    I’m very fond of green, leafy images. Beautiful and calming and a great background for the large and very pretty sentiment.
