Another Stencil Tutorial - Damask

I have another stencil tutorial today from the recent My Favorite Things order.

The stencil I am using today is Damask . It has two styles/sizes of elements in the design, each appearing three times. These can be used just as they appear on the stencil or they can be used one at a time to create a different effect.

 

I actually have TWO projects for you today – one a huge success and one a so-so result.

When I first saw the stencil in the MFT store my immediate thought was "Christmas ornament". So that is the first thing I had to try when I got the stencil.

I started with Distress Markers, white cardstock, and a pine bough stamp.

I used the markers to color directly on the stamp and used it twice across the top of the paper.



I lined up the stencil with one large unit under the left of the bough and used a Distress Marker to color through it.


I added some Liquid Pearls in dots on the ornament.

I used the edge of a card and a fine pen to make a hanging string for the ornament:


 

 

Then I added two colors of Stickles in swooshes on the stencil colored parts and between as fillers.

I bordered it with a dark green and added a gold Dazzles greeting to finish with this beauty:


And now for something totally different.....

Still using the Damask stencil, I wanted to try it out with Distress Stains. The only one I have is Picket Fence so I pulled out dark purple to create on:


I pounced the stain (it has a foam top on the bottle) through the stencil.

The result of one unit. Note that the stain is very liquid so it gives a mushy design instead of sharp edges.

I adjusted the stencil and pounced again.

I repeated this until I had a whole page filled.

You can see how the bright white fades to a flat white as it dries.

I wanted to use a set of vellum stickers of pansies that I had on hand. So I bordered the card in bright yellow and added a yellow bordered stamped greeting. I mounted the pansies on a light solid and cut them out to use on the card.


Oooh, yes, I like it!
