I wanted to try some of the new stencils I have received and not played with until today. They are from A Colorful Life Design, where you can get 10% off by using my Discount Code Kia10.

I will also add this card to the May CAS Stencil Challenge for Layered Stencilling.

I am using Marvelous Masks, Layered Simple Trees (2 stencils), and Flock. I place a piece of rolled tape to the back of my card piece when I stencil, and use the magnets from my Stay-tion to hold it all in place.

1 Die cut panel using Stitched Rectangle die,

2 Lay down Masks stencil and brush on Sunflower ink, stopping about 3/4 of the way down the stencil, so I could move the bottom up. (the stencil is larger than I wanted my opening to be).

3 Move on to Layered Simple Trees, laying down the leaves portion of the tree and brushing on Prickly Pear then Leaf Green ink. I then put down the trunk stencil and brushed on the ink using Acorn.

4 Using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne I then put down the Flock stencil and randomly added the birds where I wanted them, cleaning between each colouring as this is black we are dealing with!

5 I then stamped the sentiment in my mini Misti using the Acorn Ink again, then added the bird using the Flock stencil and Buttercup ink.

I then attached the piece to my card stock to finish.

This sentiment is new to me, and I was so excited to find Canadian English, but then I saw the name, being “Across the Pond” and thought to myself, shouldn’t it be “Right Next Door”. 🙂

  2. what a great mix of stencils you used for your layering Kia – your trees are so fun with their different shapes and the black birds flying through them all! thanks for sharing with us at CAS Stencil!

  3. You did well to keep this card looking so clean, with all those different stencils and black ink. I know I would have ended up with smudges in just the wrong place. I love that your final bird was added in yellow, a lovely final touch to a beautiful card. Thanks for joining us at CAS Stencil this month xx
