Fancy Flamingos Card and Envelope
I’m so ready for spring and pretty colors, and using this Flamingos stencil brightened my day! Read on for the how-tos.
TCW784s Flamingos 6” x 6” stencil,
TCW9043 Marcasite Silver Modeling Paste,
TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet, TCW9018 Orange Slice,
TCW9016 Spun Sugar, TCW9015 Black Licorice,
TCW9011 Clear Gel Medium
Gel Press gel printing plate, palette knives, mark-making tools
To begin, I applied Raspberry Sorbet, Orange Slice, and Spun Sugar on my Gel Press printing plate to pull some pink and coral prints on dictionary paper.
Next, I glued 2 of the prints to an old photo Christmas card using the Gel Medium. Once that dried, I sewed around the edges. Using Black Licorice paint, I stenciled one flamingo on an envelope and on one side of the card; but beforehand, I taped over the stencil so I only stenciled one of the flamingos.
After I dried that, I turned the card over and stenciled Flamingos on the other side with the Marcasite Silver Modeling Paste.
To be on the safe side, I always let the modeling paste dry a couple of hours before handling the art. NOTE: Please wash your stencil immediately after stenciling with the modeling paste. If it dries, it will ruin the stencil.
If you haven’t used the new modeling pastes yet, you are missing out on a fabulous way to add dimension to your artwork. They come in 8 beautiful colors – Champagne Gold, Grecian Gold, Antique Gold, Copper Penny, White Pearl, Platinum, Sterling Silver, and Marcasite Silver; and they spread like butter!
