Video: Coloring with Stencils Four Ways

Mar 25, 2024 Karen Brown

Using rainbow colors with coloring stencils in cardmaking.

Welcome friends, Karen Brown here to share some bright fun cards using coloring layering stencils. Today, I used Hero Arts beautiful Mandala Flower Pattern stamp set and the coordinating Color Layering Mandala Flower Pattern Stencils.

I am sharing a step-by-step visual tutorial in my video (below):

I was so inspired by this mandala that I created four different cards. I love the versatility and endless possibilities!

Monochromatic Coloring

Monochromatic mandala card in blues, greens and aquas.

With a small blending brush, I started by coloring a monochromatic panel in blues, greens and aquas. I used Splash, Blue Raspberry, Blue Hawaii and Aegean inks for this card. I then die cut my panel and a Peacock mat using Pointed Arches Infinity Dies. I added a rub-on sentiment from the Birthday Party Hero Transfer set. I really LOVE Hero Transfers!

Stenciling with Rainbow Colors

Next, I decided to add rainbow colors to my mandala. I did this two ways...first using the outline stamp and the second using only the stencil. I love both cards but I think the "stencil only" card is a bit more casual.

Hero Arts Mandala Flower Pattern rainbow colored cards with and without the outline stamp.

For both cards, I used Splash, Taffy, Pool Party and Creamsicle inks. For the card on the left, I used one of my favorite die cut sentiments:  Smile Friend Stamp and Cut XL.

For the "stencil only" card, I also trimmed my Mandala with a Rounded Rectangle Infinity Die and used a sentiment included with the stamp set.

Stenciling with Glitter Paste

For my fourth card, I stenciled a layer of Hero Glitter Paste on my mandala, and I love the result.
