Robyn here, I’m popping in today to share a stencilled card.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
This will also be my final post for The Crafter’s Workshop as my year is up and a new group of artists are joining the team to inspire you. A huge thank you to everyone who has looked at my posts and taken inspiration from my projects. I’ve really loved showing up every few weeks to inspire your creative journey.
Now let’s have a look at how my card came together.
I created the background first as this sets the tone for the other colours that come later. I smooshed some Distress Ink onto a non-stick craft mat and spritzed the ink a little with water until it beaded. I then dragged a piece of watercolour card through the colour until I was happy with the coverage and set it aside to dry. Knowing I wanted to stencil all over the piece, I left a part of it white.
I chose three warm colours that work well together but you can easily change them out for your preferred colourway.
To add an extra layer of colour and some pattern to the background, I overlaid the piece with TCW825 Love Frame and stencilled with orange Distress Oxide ink. The colour needs to be able to cover the initial layer so choose something that is darker. Of course, you could choose another Distress Ink if you don’t have any Oxides.
I then stamped a greeting and a teensy bird and coloured them using Distress Inks and a wet brush.
For extra effect, I outlined the heart shape with a dotted line using a fine, black pen. Layering the elements onto a card base finished it off.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to pull out your stencils and create something. It has been an incredible pleasure and privilege to inspire you while working with one of the best creative teams in the industry over the past year.
