Dandelion Stenciling

 

First, I decided on three colors of ink that would blend together: Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Flirty Flamingo. Then, I positioned a corner of the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut DSP on Whisper White Cardstock measuring 4″ X 5 1/4″. This was held in place by Post-It Notes, which also served as a barrier for the ink.

Using Sponge Daubers, I began daubing at the top with Blushing Bride, then Calypso Coral, ending with Flirty Flamingo, while overlapping a bit.

 

It’s exciting to lift the stencil, and see the beautiful pattern you created.

The largest flower in the pattern reminded me of a dandelion, so I used the die from Sweet Silhouettes to make a dandelion with Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  I added this dandelion, along with “wishes” from the Well Written Die Set. The word was flexible enough to fit the curve of the stem.

 

For a touch of sparkle, I dotted the “i” in “wishes” with a Woven Threads Sequin, and sprinkled a few more “dandelion seeds” around for good measure.

Incidentally, the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment also has blue tones, which I didn’t use for this project.

TIP: If you haven’t tried the Take Your Pick Tool for dealing with sequins, I highly recommend it. It’s pictured in my Product List below, where you can click on the picture for details and purchasing.

 

Today’s design was inspired by the Fusion Card Challenge sketch.

 

Have a wonderful day! See you next time!
