❄️ DECEMBER HAS ARRIVED! ❄️

Partial Stenciling for Backgrounds

by Jessica Frost-Ballas November 13, 2018 7 Comments

Hello! Jess here with a simple holiday card using partial stenciling with the Graphic Snowflake for a bright and vibrant background!

I placed the Graphic Snowflake Stencil on an angle over a piece of white cardstock and used blender brushes to blend Aegean, Summer Sky, Indigo, and Deep Ocean inks over the stencil. I kept my hand light to get a softer blend at the bottom that faded to white.

Then I stamped the pretty deer from Wonder and Magic of Christmas with Versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder before die-cutting it with the coordinating die. I stamped the sentiment from the same set with Versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder on black cardstock. I trimmed it down to a fishtail flag and adhered it to my stenciled panel. Then I used a little foam mounting tape to add my deer. I love the vibrant but soft background with the bold black sentiment and deer and I hope you do, too!  Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!

It’s gorgeoys Jess, I love that your deer stands out, although you used black and white to your awesome background. Thank you so much for showing.

So beautiful Jess. The black image & sentiment against the background really is showy. Well done as always.
