Stenciled Summer Flowers

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is to use a stencil in a card so I got on the bandwagon and created this!  The stencil I chose is one I drew and cut a couple years ago and I think it makes a nice backdrop for these blossoms from Summer Flowers!  On a white card base, I began by taping down my stencil, then with sponge daubers and distress oxide inks in Walnut, Fired Brick, Carved Pumpkin and Fossilized Amber, I filled in the spaces.  The Broken China blue (distress oxide ink) speckles were made with a very old Stampin Up texture stamp!

I set that aside and pulled out a piece of special marker paper and stamped the images from Summer Flowers with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then began to color with my new Copic markers.  My colors are still limited but I have enough for flowers!

After coloring, I added more texture by dotting on some black Nuvo Drops.  Next, I fussy-cut the blossoms and leaves, cutting out some of the petals and curling the leaves a tad so I could stand them up a little for a more realistic appearance.  I then arranged them on top of the stenciled design, gluing the pieces down with Tacky Glue.  I stamped Thinking of You (The Ton’s Basic Labels) with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto a scrap of white, cut it out and mounted it with a bit of foam tape.  I wasn’t sure how this would come together but I’m quite happy with it!

  1. I just love this one too! You are really getting the hang of the copics. I am not. Thinking about letting them go once and for all. Unless of course, you want to come to GA to hang out and you can teach me. 🙂 Beautiful card … as usual!!!
