June - Stencils 1

This month we concentrated on using our stencils and fine-liner pens in black and in white.

This first class project involved drawing round the stencil in black and then zentangling the various areas.
The stencil was the Flame frame from Clarity Stamps.  I wanted to put a zentangle stamped image in the centre, but I did not have one, so I used a stamp from Clarity Stamps that I could make look like it had been zentangled.

The second class project involved drawing round the stencil in white pen.  The tree stencil was from Imagination Crafts.  The deer stamp from Clarity Stamps.  The background was created by using the "handmade paper effect" texture cube.  I really wanted the dies cuts to be ivy, but I did not have those dies - however they arrived in time for the class and the members cards looked much better for it.

This card sums up what I enjoy about making cards and that is using products from different companies and bringing it all together to make a card.

The stencil is from Clarity Stamps, and I have just drawn round with a black pen. The lady and small individual flower stamps are from ........... and the square stamp of three flowers is a freebie stamp from Craft Stamper.

Whilst I was talking the class through the making of the above card, I made the card below.

Then finally we made the following card.

Firstly the lady of choice was stamped - she is from a Debbi Moore stamp set, she came with the circle frame as part of the stamp.  Then several different circle stencils were used to draw circle round the stamped images - every range of stencils seems to have one or two made up of just circles of different circles.  The other stamped images and sentiments come from a Phill Martin set of stamps.

Note not all the circles are coloured in.
