Hi everyone, I'm over at the Magenta Blog today, and you can see that post here.
I love the newApple Blossom Mask that Magenta made, inspired by one of my favorite stamps, Apple Blossom Bouquet. This template comes in two pieces and can be used as a stencil or a mask. In this case, I taped it together and used it as a stencil.
There are a lot of cool techniques that you can do with stenciling, including using paste, but this time I just blended Distress ink through the stencil. It's the easiest and fastest thing you can do, and it looks amazing.
I kind of think that you could just leave it the way it is, add a sentiment and it's a card. But I decided to deepen the colors using Prismacolor pencils.
Since I already had lots of great color laid down with the Distress inks, it was pretty easy to blend in the colored pencils, and I always enjoy coloring.
I added the sentiment at the end in Versafine Onyx Black ink and matted my panel in So Silk Black Style cardstock.
Hope everyone is staying healthy and safe! I keep seeing an advertisement from a Mexican restaurant in Spanaway Washington. The ad has a photo of 24 mini (street) tacos, salsa and rice and beans that they are offering for take-out (no sit-down restaurants open at this time). It makes me want to go to Spanaway, and I don't even know where that is. So we are going to try and make our own street tacos soon. All the best to you all!
