The focal was cut with Silhouette in two pieces. The back piece I water colored and the front cutout was white cs that got heat embossed in black then glued on and added white dots with gel pen. The base white cs was sponged with the same butterfly silhouette in light gray, a lower portion added in a pp and some flourishes then tag (made on Silhouette) all layered on.
The background started out as white layering weight paper that was dry embossed with a stencil. I then swiped 3 colors of ink pads across the paper. Added the Silhouette cut sentiment and flourish. Last was a bit of shinny with jewel tone glossy accents then layered on white cs base.
This gear stencil was screaming to be a birthday card for a guy. I used the black glitter paste on white cs for the lower portion. The sentiment is cut on Silhouette and then glued on red cs. Added some more glitter paste through stencil on red cs corner. All is layered on white cs base.
Tip: To clean my stencils I put them on my glass mat and spray liberally with rubbing alcohol. Then I wipe both side and glass with paper towel till clean. When I was washing them in the sink I kept having clogged drains, especially with the resist spray. Now the stencils are cleaner and so is my drain,
The first layout is described in the previous post. The second print is more for a sympathy card. I did not add any sentiment or additional images. Very clean and simple with just a hint of sponging for the sky line.
My sister is gong on a cruise and I don’t own a stamp that lends to anything of the big water. I found this sail boat and shadow in a digi site and made it work. Added the embossing folder and sponged two shades of blue in the water and sky with the moon masking. Layered it on a Silhouette cut boarder and navy layer all on white cs base. The tag is die cut in vellum and added twine and Silhouette cut sentiment.
