Virginia's Stencil Sunday #1 (Scene-Building)

Hello friends!

If you like stencils like I do, you might want to check out today's (and every Sunday's) post!
Last summer, I did a series of Stencil Sundays and everyone seemed to enjoy the series!
I had fun creating and shared, you commented and you liked... 😊 What's not to love, right?

Well, I am back at it again. From this week on, I will be featuring at least one of the stencils (from Altenew) on Sunday and will continue to do so until my time or idea runs out! πŸ˜€ 

Altenew SCALLOP BUILDER Stencil ALT2194

from: Simon Says Stamp

Scallop Builder Stencil


I am using Scallop Builder Stencil as my example.  
This stencil can be used in so many creative ways. Art Deco, scallop border and clouds are one of a few that I can easily think of. This time I used this stencil as the wave and created a scene!

I used the stencil in two colors and used only portion of the stencil. This creates a misty illusion and also does not overpower the overall design.

The magical part of this card? In my humble opinion, it is the mixed color of the splatter!
Can you spay white, silver and blue
I used various ink sprays for the spatter effect.

Good Morning, I LOVE Stencil Sunday, I have a ton of stencils but I have only used them on home dΓ©cor, never on a card, I just can't get inspired. I am looking forward to your ideas like the one today which is so beautiful, just love that background. Thanks for an awesome post today.

Your color choice made the 'sea' very real. A very unique use of this stamp set too. I have trouble using stencils...more practice! You have, without a doubt, become a stencil star!

MelissaF said...

Beautiful card, love how you used this scallop stencil for the water, perfect colors and loose look with the splatter and fade out. I look forward to more stencil ideas, thanks so much!

So happy you decided to reprise your stencil series. You are so good at mixing the colors and creating scenes with them. This one is especially beautiful.
