Stenciled Day 3 ~ Texture and Dimension

 
Back with a card I did using stencils and some texture paste.

IMG_7737

I used a Dreamweaver stencil and some translucent paste.  I added some embossing powder over the paste and left it dry.  I used a maroon colour for the sail and brown for the boat and birds.  For the water I used a sparkle embossing powder.  Once it dried, I heated the embossing powder and then did a bit of resist watercolouring with Pearlescent paint.    I used some PP from a Rosie's Studio paper pack for my background.  The little stamp is from a date stamp type stamp with lots of little sentiments.

And here are some of other techniques I tried


Embossing powder on the paste (DIY stencil used from a die cut of the Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts die) Translucent paste (to do a resist technique) and a bit of watercoloured stenciling (had the paint too wet) 

Today was the last day of the class but Jennifer did a bonus class as well and there was a SVG/PNG cut available for the class participants.   Not sure when I'll get time to finish my home work.
