Art Card

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I am playing with some yummy new stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop and making an art card for a friend! She knows I love snark and appreciates my weird sense of humor!

Finished art card for a friend.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project.

The opinions I share are solely my own.

The Crafter’s Workshop Products Used:

TCW9051 Watercolor paper pack 

TCW9001 White Gesso 

TCW947 Beaded Mandala stencil 

TCW945 Star Flower Net 

TCW955 Buffalo Plaid Square 

TCW2167 Halftone Vortex 

TCW2204 When it Rains 4×6 Clear Stamp 

I wanted this card to be a bit monotone so I started by cutting a sheet of TCW9051 Watercolor paper pack  papers in half, to give me a card about 5.5” x 8.5”. I gessoed the whole card using TCW9001 White Gesso, and then a layer of DecoArt chalky Vintage acrylic paint that I mixed half and half with white for a muted color. I placed TCW947 Beaded Mandala stencil  over some areas of the wet acrylic and wiped off through the stencil using a baby wipe

Once this was dry, I used about 2/3: 1/3 of Vintage paint to White acrylic to give the color more tone. I used TCW 945 Star Flower Net  and applied the paint through the stencil using a sponge, and only down the left side, bottom and top right corner. I am starting the layers for my main image at the end.

Using TCW955 Buffalo Plaid Square  , I taped off a section I wanted to use on the left side of my card (over the existing layers). I sponged the Vintage acrylic paint over this… mixed about ¾ – 1/4 with white.

I took TCW955 Buffalo Plaid Square and sectioned off an area and applied acrylic paint through the stencil using a sponge over the previous layers along the left and bottom of the card.

Once dried, I used TCW 2167 Halftone Vortex stencil and the full colored acrylic paint, and sponged through the circles in random areas over the entire card.

I added some stamping using the stars from TCW2204 When it Rains 4×6 Clear Stamp set and added some splatters of the acrylic leftover paint.

To finish off my card, I added more black splatters, some edge stamping, washi tape, my little girl and of course my snarky sentiment!

  1. I have been following your posts for a bit. I use the stencil ideas. Some of your projects use a bit of ephemera. Look as I might, I can’t seem to find out where they come from.
    Thanks
