Stacked Stenciled Background +BLOG HOP!

Welcome back to another Wednesday blog hop! This week, the theme at Brutus Monroe is ANYTHING GOES! The team has free reign to create and share anything they are inspired to.

We also have one of our May guests joining us! Cassie has posted some amazing projects on the Brutus Monroe blog this past month, and we are so excited to have her join us. Please follow the links to everyone’s blog posts and leave them some love! Now, on to today’s card!

I used one of the stencils from the STENCIL OF THE MONTH CLUB at Brutus Monroe to add some Altenew Embossing Paste to this card. On the bottom panel, I mixed some of the paste with some SURFACE INKS to lightly tint it. The colors go from blue, to green, to yellow. Its very light, but I love how it turned out!

For the panel that is popped up in front, I first ink blended, using the same colors that I tinted the paste on the bottom panel with. Then, I used the stencil again to add more paste; this time just plain white. After all the paste was dry, I trimmed down my two panels, and stacked them over each other, lining up the stencil design so it continues from the front panel to the panel underneath. Im sure there is a name for this technique, but I don’t know it so I am just calling this a “Stacked Stenciled Background”.

With my stenciled panels done, I die cut the word “always” using some smooth, gold paper from Tonic. I also stamped and embossed the supporting sentiment from another set in my stash. This sentiment is embossed in GILDED and matches the “always”.

I love all the dimension and embossing paste on this card! Such a fun one to create!

Thanks for stopping by today! Please follow the list of names below to hop along to everyone’s blog posts this week. Happy hopping!

    What a beautiful, beautiful card, Marie!! I love the softly tinted paste and the layers, and how you lined up each panel to create the whole image of the stencil! I wish we could purchase that stencil without the kit! 😀
