Card inspirations

Layering Stencil With Colored Pencils / Anne Fiene

Layering Stencil With Colored Pencils / Anne Fiene

Hi guys! It's Anne here up on the blog with a card I made using one of Pinkfresh's newer layering stencil sets, Enchanting Meadow and colored pencils. I thought this meadow scene would look so sweet with the finer line that a pencil can give you. 

I started with some loose sketch paper that I had sitting in my stash, some very sharp pencils and a sharpener on stand by. There are 5 stencils in this set so I thought that if I was going to layer pencil on top of pencil I had better start out lightly. As each layer went by I would would use darker shades but I saved the  detailed work for the blooms.

Because I kept the coloring simple, when I was done I felt I really should do something more and decided to make it a little more "enchanting" with one of the stencils from another of my favorite sets, Argyle and some glitter gel. I love that glimmery diamond motif laid down over the meadow!

I had a sentiment in mind from the beginning from the Floral Notes stamp set and stamped it on to vellum. Just before I adhered the top layer down onto  some cream colored cardstock, using foam tape, I decided it looked a little rustic with that shade of off white and added a twine bow. I could not stop myself from adding additional sparkle using Pinkfresh's Jewels Mix, and I was done.

I hope that some of these design ideas have inspired you to make something new today. Thank you so much for coming by!

Anne, this is beautiful. I never thought of using pencils through a stencil.

Hi Susan, Yes! I laid the stencil down and traced through it with a pencil… with a good point but not with too much pressure. After I pulled the stencil away I would fill in any spaces left. I hope this helps! Thanks for coming by.

I am curious…did you color with your pencils through the stencils as you layered them?
