Hi there TCW creatives!
Tammy (aka Tambarambaa) here again to share another handmade card. This one is a lot of fun, as you create a wreath using a variety of stencils.
TCW provided me with some awesome goodies, but the art and opinions are my own.
So let’s begin….
I began by trimming some of the TCW9051 A4 watercolor paper in half. I then used TCW970 Color Wheel as a guide, placing it in the center of my paper, and marking a circle lightly with a pencil. I used the second circle in from the edges.
Next, I grabbed this NEW stencil TCW968 Summer Meadow as it has so many different flowers and leaves on it, I knew it would make a gorgeous wreath.
I selected leaves and placed them around the circle line, and then used Distress Oxides and a blending tool to rub color over the stencil. I made sure I used a couple of shades of green in the Oxides to get a more natural look.
I continued this process, all the way around, and also added some leaves from stencil TCW963 Hanging Vines.
Time to bring in a few pops of color. For this I again used TCW968 Summer Meadow, this time concentrating on the flowers and berries within the stencil, blending with some blues, pinks and oranges.
I placed the berries around the wreath, but focused the flowers to just one cluster. This then became the perfect spot to add in a sentiment.
I trimmed the card down to 5.5 inches and then on some that I was discarding I stamped a sentiment using black archival ink.
I used one from TCW2206 Sweet Sentiments Stamp – I love how they are on a curve, and this fit perfectly around my wreath.
I had a few little marks of color, where my color had gone over the stencil marks, so to cover these I grabbed this gorgeous little branch/leaf stamp from stamp set TCW2203 Missing You and stamped it strategically to cover these up.
For the final step, I added a few little marks with a black pen here and there.
All ready to adhere to a 6×6 inch card and give to someone special on their special day.
I’d love you to give this a go! Don’t forget to tag us using #tcwstencillove so that we can see all your amazing creations using TCW goodies!
Much love and creative vibes to you
