Hi there lovely people, Tammy (aka Tambarambaa) here with you today to share my latest stencil-y creations…..
TCW provided me with some awesome goodies to play with, but the art and opinions are my own.
I created a couple of rainbow style cards using the awesome Stencil Butters and a few of the newer stencils. These stencils are just so gorgeous, they really do all the hard work for you!!
So let’s begin……
I grabbed the Stencil Butters in all my fave colors, which just happens to be the colors of the rainbow. I used Fuchsia, Marigold, Gamboge, Chartreuse, Turquoise, Ocean Blue and Orchid.
Using a blending brush, I applied a touch of each color to the scenic stencil, trying to place them in appropriate areas, for example, yellow, pink and orange for the sun etc. I did this with a circular motion which definitely makes it easier to blend.
Once I had filled in all the areas, time to lift that stencil. Aaah the magic, this really never gets old!!
I then grabbed another stencil TCW1050 Nautical Vision but this time, instead of focusing on particular areas, I just applied the stencil butters in a rainbow effect, working from the top to the bottom, allowing each color to blend as I went.
This stencil lends itself to this style, but I am much happier with the results. Plus it was much easier to create as I didn’t need to worry about going too much out of the ‘lines’.
Ok time to trim down the cards. I then adhered them to TCW9079 6×6 Folded Card and Envelope Set and added a simple sentiment and border.
I really think that’s all these cards need. They are so fresh with the white.
I love that these cards could suit so many occasions – travel, birthday, just cause, thankyou.
When I trimmed down the cards, I was left with a strip.
Of course, I couldn’t let this go to waste – I decided it would make the perfect bookmark. For this I repeated the above process, but this time I used a 12×12 stencil as I wanted it to be BOLD and funky.
I selected stencil TCW987 Botanical Heart and actually just used the edge – how cool does it look!!
I really wish you could see the shimmer and shine. So hard to capture on camera.
There you have it – 3 fun and easy projects from 1 sheet of paper!
I hope this has inspired you today.
Happy arting and happy color!!
