Die Stenciling

I designed this card for the Scrap'n Stamp Random Act of Cardness. The keyword for today is Stencil. What I decided to do was Die Stenciling. 

This large flower is by Spellbinders. It is large enough to add paste which is what I did, adding a lot of texture. 
First however, I cut a piece of white card then stenciled using a stencil that was included in a stamp set I got, which I am pretty sure was one of the Scripty Birds. The piece was slightly larger than what I would need so I could trim up the edges.

To do the stenciling I used distress inks in peeled paint, twisted citron and squeezed lemonade.
I then die cut the floral part of the die from 80lb. card to use as my stencil. You have to be quick with this so you can remove the card stencil as soon as possible, as it does not stand up. 

If you want to keep it for stencil work I suggest you die cut it from plastic coated card or heavy Mylar.

Using Ranger Opaque Crackle Texture Paste for the flower using the 80lb paper die cut I cut. I applied the paste roughly, to add extra textures to the flower, and as soon as the paste was completed I removed the card stencil.

I then die cut a new piece from Neenah 120lb card to use when the paste was dry.

Once the paste was dry and using one of the small round Life Changing Brushes I applied squeezed lemonade, kitsch flamingo and red barn to the flower. I then added Midas Touch Shimmering pen.

When all was dry I glued on the white die cut. I then trimmed the cardstock panel. To finish I die cut 2 hugs dies, one in black and the other in red glitter card and glued them to the flower.
