Let's see what our newest Creative Team member came up with...
Hey there! Daniel West here to show off the My Monthly Hero Card Kit for April 2020 with a switch up on the stencil included in this kit.
The landscape stencil includes a wavy foreground and a cloudy sky with a sun or moon, depending on how you use it! For this card, I used the stencil to create an Aussie desert scene with Reactive Inks, blender brushes and some masking. I figured the change-up on this card would give you some ideas on how to use the stencil for all it's worth!
To begin, I prepped the stencil with some tacky spray adhesive and laid it down over a 4 x 5.25" panel of Dove White cardstock. Then, I gently added ink down the front of the panel in Blue Hawaii, Taffy, and Lemon Drop inks. Then, I masked off the bottom portion in two sections by cutting rounded shapes out plain paper. Each dune got a different color: Fruit Punch and Berry Smoothie. For each color, I turned the stencil in a different direction.
