Handwritten Script

I have always loved handwritten script. Stamps or stencils they all give a layer of texture and depth to a background.  This post is highlighting a new large stencil from Darkroom door called Handwritten script. 

I started with a mix of the handwritten script with a soft green dye ink sponged onto the background. 
 Then I layered the lavender stencil with white embossing paste.  I let it dry and sponged a soft purple dye ink over the embossing paste. 

I stamped the sentiment onto tissue paper and glued it to the front and then added a few vellum dragonflies with some serious bling.

Next up is a card created from journal ledger paper.
 The handwritten script was embossed using white embossing paste.  I sprayed and misted brown ink over the background.

I stamped the postcard image onto another scrap from the same journal paper.  I folded it over to create a little pocket.  I stamped a flower to put in the pocket and added a bird and label with the sentiment stamped inside.

My next card was made from scraps. (My favorite kind of way to pull together bits and pieces)

 I started with a watery script from cleaning up the stencil.  I layered on a base with the same watery stencil image.

I layered in some labels stamped and cut out previously and added a flower created for the previous card.

Finally a dreamy sunny card using the warm wishes flowers.

This one had a spritzed background using the stencil and a distress oxide ink.  After it dried the flowers were inked up with distress oxide and spritzed with water and stamped.  

The sentiments were stamped along the stems and the bees added for movement.

I hope you are all keeping safe and using this time to spend with your family (the ones who are staying at home with you) and crafting.
