Stencil it card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Stencil it".


Stencils are one of my favorite tools, so I used 3 of my favorite stencils for this card. I started with the Schoolhouse stencil and Distress Paint Black Soot. Then my second favorite stencil is Tiles. I used this one with Texture Paste. When it was dry I applied a layer of Opal Magic Rose-Gold with a silicone brush. Love the way that looks and make the black turn into gold.

 

With Infusions (Sunset Beach, Lemoncello and Are You Cerise) I added some color. The effect that Infusions gives with Opal Magic Paint is really cool. But I wanted to add some more contrast so I used Black Knight Infusions for that. That also immediately gives it a more dramatic look. The black letters of the Schoolhouse stencil had disappeared a bit in the background and therefore it was a fun idea to use the smaller size of Schoolhouse stencil with also Distress Paint Black Soot and also in the same spot.

Bold and Beautiful art journal spread with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Ombre". We're also showcasing Dina Wakley products. If you have them, we sure like to see them used in your project.



Dina Wakley, together with Dyan Reavely, has a product line, and that includes a Gel Plate. So why not make an art journal spread with it. I used 4 different colors of Dina Wakley Heavy Body Paints: Lapis, Sky, Turquoise and Lime. With a Brayer I spread them out onto the Gel Plate. Then I used the Dina Wakley Spaced Dots stencil to create a nice pattern. That is quite a bold design with the colors I've chosed....hihihi. I applied Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire on the white edges. And with some  Dylusions Spray Black Marble I added some black splatters.

 

With the Papillon background stamp I stamped in random places around the edges. Then it was time for Washi Tape. With the Old School Number stencil and Texture Paste mixed with Blueberry Heavy Body Paint, I applied some texture. After it was dry, I gave the larger numbers some dot decorations with a white marker.

 

The letters I have cut out with the Word Play die and the Alphabet Thinlits. With the Distress Crayon Black Soot I applied a shadow around it by putting Distress Crayon on the letters and then rubbing it around with my finger. With a white marker made some doodles.
