Floral Drape

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the Floral Drape Stencil from Altenew. This is another present that I was sent by a friend and didn't get around to using last year. It is so beautiful and I think it has a lot of uses - for backgrounds and for focal points. Today I used it to create a bit of a watercolour look.

I started off by taking a sheet of watercolour paper and placing the stencil on top. I first masked off the leaf areas with Post-It tape and then blended over Distress Oxide Ink on to the flower portions. I used Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry inks. I then masked these areas off and blended inks onto the leaves. I used Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio. I removed the masks and before removing the stencil, I spritzed over a mist of Sparkle Spritz. The stencil was then removed and the piece set aside to dry.
I took the SSS Painted Thanks die and cut this three times from black cardstock that has Stick It adhesive on the back. The die cuts were then layered up one on top of another to create a bit of height. I took the stencilled panel and cut this down slightly, adding it to a black A2 card base with tape runner. I then added the thanks die cut on top. To finish off, I added a few Sparkling Clear sequins.

  1. I absolutely love what you did with the stencil Michelle. The colours are so vibrant and really pop with the black. I just knew you would make it stunning 💕

  2. Very pretty card, I gave myself some clarity stencil brushes for Christmas, so need to use them in a technique like this, they give such a soft effect.

  3. This is such a wonderful card !
