Stencil Mania

Welcome back to another Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge.  This time Jenny is hosting a fabulous challenge to use our stencils called Stencilmania.

Here is how she describes the challenge:

"Stencils are such versatile tools - you can add colour through them, add texture and patterns with them, draw with them, emboss with them, print with them and so much more. So for this challenge we want you to get creative with your stencils, adding as many layers as you dare to create a vintage or shabby chic project to share with us all."

Well.... I had tons of stenciled art laying around my craft desk as I had been playing with different ideas for a variety of challenges. 

I decided to take a few similar toned pieces that I had created previously and create a few more.

I started with one of my index cards created previously and cut it up.  I then took a second one and cut that up.  I created a new background using a embossed background and sponged blue ink over the background to create a third layer.

To finish it off I created a background and stamped the script and then embossed with translucent embossing paste over that.

I layered the bits and pieces together.  I then wanted a focal point so I pulled out the professor to add a fun touch to the card.

For my second card I masked off some areas of the card and used the stencil to add a flowery section.
This one just received a sponging of dye ink across the center and some stamped script in a softer tone of ink.

I then stamped and layered the flying bees along with a pretty sentiment.

I hope you will hop over and check out the magic the rest of the design team created using the stencils. The winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh I just knew you'd ace this challenge Suzz. Your collaged cards with those wonderful layers of stencilling and stamping work perfectly especially as you've chosen to keep them both monochromatic. Your creations are always so inspiring xx

  2. Suzz, both of your cards are a fabulous display of just how versatile stencils can be! I love all those layers on the first in the pastel shades--what a great collage! And I love the simplicity of the neutral toned bee card; how clever to mask off the top and bottom before stenciling and then stamping for a look of layers on a flat card. Just perfect for mailing! And I love that each are monochromatic! You are truly an inspiration!
