https://stencilfun.blogspot.com/2022/10/october-stencil-fun.html & Peace On Earth Christmas Challenge #25

Considering that I wasn’t overwhelmed by my previous stenciling attempt I decided to try again and this one I quite like. Although it isn’t in Halloween colours it still works for the challenge and it also works for the Peace on Earth one as well. The background was stenciled in Pine Needles ink and used a stencil called pine leaves by Vicki Boutin. It is a larger size stencil so I have another small piece that can be used on a different card later. While it was drying I stamped the snow couple using a new Stampendous Cling rubber stamp and then I coloured them using Inktense pencils and a Sakura pen. The word was cut using a die set by MFT also new although purchased earlier in the year. It leaves a slightly puffy look to the letters which I quite like. The stenciled layer was offset very slightly on the card front and then I fussy cut the top of the stamped image before layering it on top with words added to the side. I’m much happier with this attempt and having it work for 2 challenges is a bonus. Hope you like it too.

    1. Thanks – Initially I laid the entire image down and realized that it would look better and more interesting if I partially cut it.


    1. Thanks Judy. I’m not sure if the reason it gives a puffy look is due to the fact that I used a metallic gold or if it is the same with regular CS. I’ll find out soon when I begin to make Xmas cards in earnest.


    1. Thanks so much. I thought using the word die would make for a nice look and decided on the vertical placement as it worked best.
