Hello there, fellow creative peeps! I love stencils and media and creating with those. Thus I am sharing a set of artist trading cards created with lots of stencils and media. Here is the set I created:
The first one´s background is misted with a green Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist spray. Then I´ve used a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil and added pearlescent greenish Creative Medium on top of the misted background. I took a separate white piece of cardstock and added red and orange Distress Ink thru a stencil onto the paper. After that I fussy cut the flower forms and outlined with a black pen. Next I added a metal brad in the middle of both flowers and added two stickers for decoration. The white dots are hand drawn. Just a little something to add interest to the ATC.
The second one was originally white cardstock. I sprayed blue spray ink (Tattered Angels) onto a stencil and then pressed the image onto the paper. Followed with a second layer and a new stencil I did the same. That creates this funky background look. Next I grabbed some misted paper leftover pieces and punched butterflies. I layered two various sizes and on the colored ones there is DIY glitter paste applied thru a stencil on those butterflies. All stencils I´ve used are by The Crafter´s Workshop. Here on this video you can see, how I make the glitter paste myself. Finally I just added a few typed words into the middle (typed with my old typewriter).The third ATC is kind bold in color. I first misted the background with orange Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels), then I stamped a sentiment (Elizabeth Craft Designs) onto a piece of white cardstock and misted that yellow. Next I mixed some transparent texture paste together with red spray ink and applied that thru a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil onto the background (in the middle..). I had a leftover circle punched piece on my desk which I taped with Tim Holtz tissue tape onto the ATC. Then I placed another TCW stencil on top of the ATC and applied yet another layer of transparent texture paste thru it. While the paste was still wet, I took a cardboard box and poured microbeads onto the wet areas. They stuck to the paste really well, but you still need a box of some kind to gether the residue beads into the jar. This layer needs to dry properly. After it was dry I fussy cut the stamped sentiment and glued it on top of everything else. The last ATC has a purple Glimmer Mist background (again Tattered Angels sprays). After that I applied pearlescent Creative Medium on top of that ink layer thru 2 different stecils by TCW. The second stencil comes as a mask and a stencil, so I used both to create the blue areas between the pearlescent medium areas. Next I again stamped a stentiment (love these two Elizabeth Craft Designs sentiment stamps!) on white cardstock which I then misted with red Glimmer Mist. Then I adhered a piece of ribbon into the middle, some half pearls (by Zva Creative) decorate the left side with a DIY tissue paper rose. The right side only needed the fussy cut sentiment on top in my opinion. Lots of layers with all kinds of product I really like to use. Fun, creative times!!!
