Virginia's Stencil Sunday #2

Hello friends!
Today is my 2nd installment of Stencil Sunday!
This time I am tackling a very Classy Stripes Stencil.😊
I know spraying mist to the cards can be intimidating and out of control.
 However, with the help of stencil, spraying can be orderly and contained.
 Trust me on this one if you look at the card below! 😉
(shop Simon Says Stamp here)

 Today's card is pretty organic, yet it is not chaotic or messy.
if friends were flowers..

Remember this card?

Well, the "secret weapon" to color the image is this simple tool.
It is awesome for spraying colors to the flower or any element to your cards!
We R Memory Keepers MARKER AIRBRUSH Tool 660081

 ps: there is only one left over SSS as I write this post...
I saw it on

We R Memory Keepers - Basic Tools - Marker Airbrush — $13.12

You can find this tool over here

I used Altenew Artist Markers for the coloring and I really love the spritz of colors here and there.
I must admit that I am still learning with this tool as the spraying is not always consistent with what I intended... So, you have been warned. 😉

The Classy Stripe Stencil comes in handy for adding the shine with Antique Gold Spray!
I must also add that the AirBrush Tool is a pretty cool to play with. It will work with any alcohol markers. I even tried water color markers and Distress Markers and all you need is a spritz of water to the markers and then spray with the tool!

if friends were flowers, I'll pick you

It is a good idea to isolate the flower and the background as I used different colors for each element.
It is sort of a "controlled chaos" as you can say.

if friends were flowers,

I also die cut a few the Flower dies and stacked them up a bit to make it stand out.
The white-embossed sentiment helps to draw the eyes to the focal point.


Lastly, here is another idea of using the same Classy Stripes Stencil in case you miss seeing my previous post. As you can see, I used two colors with this stencil.

This stencil truly is versatile. I felt that I am only touching the surface (more to come later)!

Hope that you are enjoying the Stencil Sunday series and are getting some inspiration.

Gorgeous cards, Virginia! I love how you played with your stencil...each design is so unique and the striped pattern is showcased beautifully!

Great inspiration Virginia. This stencil has just arrived at my place. You have given me some great ideas. I have the Tim Holtz sprtizer which is the same as this. It doesn't get loved enough.

I did a little spraying yesterday and made a mess! Wish I saw this post before I did a 'do-over' on a card. Love that last card with the two colored stripes. Beautiful!

The Classy Stripes Stencil most certainly adds a classy touch to your cards. I love the effect of the spray on all the cards. I had looked at that sprayer before, now it will go on my list as well as the stencil.

Your work with sprays always looks planned and precise. This card is no exception and the stencilling looks terrific.

Very pretty with the stripes and thanks for all the tips.

Using the stencil just at the bottom is the perfect backdrop for your beautiful flower!
