Hello crafty friends! It’s Jess from JessCrafts.com. I am very excited to be guest designing for StencilGirl Products. I love working with stencils in my cardmaking. Creating unique fun backgrounds with stencils is the most common way I use stencils. I also love to include cutesy stamps in my cardmaking and so today I am sharing a video tutorial for how I created this fiery background for a Valentine’s Card featuring Jessica Sporn's Cascading Feathers stencil.
Stencils often look great on a white background but building up layers around them can give a background so much more interest. Of course you should always follow your inspiration when creating. While the stencil is named to have feathers I immediately saw flames and was able to create that look for my background. I could easily switch up the context and use the same stencil as intended to add texture to a bird.
To create this background I used watercolor paper and Distress Stains to create an ombre background. Then I put the stencil over it and blended in two different colors of red ink. To finish it off I flicked on some red stain. I love to make my projects cute and playful to I added this punny sentiment and a cute stamp.
Thank you so much to StencilGirl for letting me join you and to all of you for checking out my project. I hope that some of you will follow along with me on social media.
