Tutorial Thursday - Using Layering Stencil
Hey there fellow crafters this is Kerri. So you sit down to my a card and you are going threw your paper and you cannot find the right one for your card..Frustrating right well no more..Stencils are great for this so I am going to show you how I used TREE IN BLOOM Layering Stencil.
white card stock
distress oxide ink pads (tumbled glass, mermaid lagoon, antique linen, vintage photo, walnut stain, peeled paint and forest moss)
Step 1. Gather your supplies
Step 2. Place the tree where you want it on your white card stock
Step 3. Once tree is in place gently lay the leaves stencil over top. This way you can line them up with the branches.
Step 4. Secure your leaf stencil either with magnets like I did or you can use washi tape. Once secure remove the tree from underneath carefully.
Step 5. Using your lightest green here I have chosen Peeled Paint. Take your blending brush apply ink and I apply in a gentle circular motion.
Step 6. Taking you dark green color here I used Forest Moss. Apply color to blending brush now place color on tips of leaves. This will give them some dimension.
Here are the leaves done with both the of the Greens.
Step 7. Now you are going to add the tree. Take the tree stencil and line it up with the leaves. Once you are happy with the placement you can secure it down.
Step 8. Now to do the tree you are going to take your Antique Linen with your blending brush and fill in tree. Next you will take Vintage Photo and apply where you want some shadows. Last is Walnut Stain and use this sparingly in make your shadows pop.
Step 9. If you want some of the flowers on your tree take Tumbled Glass as your lightest color and your Mermaid Lagoon as your shadow color. Follow the steps for doing the leaves.
Here is the tree all done!! I love the way it looks.
