Good morning everyone!!
Today I am sharing a card made with a sketch in mind from Louise Healy.
This card was made with the Faux Cross Stitching Technique. This is the first time I have tried the technique, and I can definitely see room for improvement, but none the less, I like the result!
First I taped my stencil, Daisies (LL548) to the card stock and I ran it through my brand new Tim Holtz Vagabond (☺Thank you so much MOM). The stencil was then dry embossed. Using Brilliance Inks, I lightly stenciled ink through the stencil. Once I got the coverage I was looking to achieve, I taped my screen over the stencil. Then, once again, I inked the darker colors of pigment ink through the screen and the stencil. You can see in some areas where the colors got under the screen. This happened for two reasons, I had to much ink on the stencil brush and I didn't have my screen close enough to the paper. I should have been holding it down better with my fingers.
Inside the card, I stenciled Butterfly Duo (LJ887) on the inside with Platinum Brilliance Inks...
Here is Louise's instructions and sketch....
Not only was my card today fueled by this challenging sketch, but I also used the fabulous colors of CR84FN Color Challenge...
