The next Level 1 homework was for Celebrations: Stencil Techniques. I use stencils in many of my card designs and in mixed media projects. I have an extensive collection of them. For this card,the stencil I selected was the Altenew graduated dots. A well used stencil. I like that I can selected the size dots I want to use. I used the Charmed stamp set which includes a floral group and lots of word sentiments. Lots to pick from. I used Neenah white card stock cut to a quarter sheet to double stamp the floral branch in black ink. I would trim it later after I was finished stamping. I colored and blended the flowers and the leaves using Copic markers. I stamped the word sentiment and then die cut a stitched oval shaped. Then it was time for the stenciling. I used Altenew Sunkissed dye ink and a blending brush. I like to add a few focal points- a gold cord accent around the card from May Arts. I used foam tape to secure the word tag. A few clear and glossy Nuvo drops on the petals and flower centers. The light orange petals, soft yellow ink and soft green leaves are a nice combination of colors.

This is such a wonderful card Nancy!! LOVE it! The colours look great and they work well together too. I also like the layout and placement of the floral elements. The stenciling ties the images together quite beautifully ad also doesn’t take away from the focal images!
