For the month of April, Jaded Blossom is having a STENCIL CHALLENGE! I made a card previously for this challenge using the Tree Stencil (you can view it HERE), and decided to create a different type of card using the same stencil. I love that this stencil comes with both the outline and inset part of the stencil so you can do overlays on your project.
For this card, I used the main stencil and a combo of Distress Oxide Inks and Memento Ink to color in the trees. Then I laid the tree cut-outs over the colored trees so I could add the clouds and grassy area around the trees, but still be able to keep the crisp outline of the trees. Did you know you can also use die-cuts as stencils? I use the cloud border die from the Border Dies 2 Set and cut a piece of cardstock. Then I laid the cloud border down on my card panel and rubbed Broken China Distress Oxide Ink along the cloud edge. The sentiment is from the Seasonal Tree Stamp Set (retired).
We hope you play along in the April Challenge for a chance to win a FREE Stamp Set! Be sure to check out the Jaded Blossom Store for all your stamps and gift giving supplies. They have various Cutting Dies to make party favors along with Favor Bags and Boxes.
