Clarity Stamps "Wild Flower Spray Stencil" card

A softer more feminine looking card from me this time using a stencil. 

I found a background in my stash that I'd made some months ago using a selection of colours of Distress Oxide inks.  I'd splattered water from a fan paint brush to ge the bleached dots look and the background was just waiting to be used.

I decided to pair the background with a Clarity Stamps stencil called "Wild Flower Spray". I used low tack tape to secure the stencil over the background then used three shades of Versafine Clair inks (Charming Pink, Shady Lane and Warm Breeze) through the stencil.  I then moved the stencil and filled in a few empty spaces with more detail.

After lifting the stencil, I added extra detail to the flowers and foliage by using Van Goch Pastel Pencils, gel pens and a 2B pencil.

I stamped the sentiment by Simon Says Stamp (part of their "Tiny Words - Birthday" stamp set) using Versafine Clair "Charming Pink" ink.  I used the same ink to edge the card using a finger dabber.


  1. The dimension on the flowers is amazing Sam,a really beautiful card

  2. What a beautiful blue background Sam with the water spatters bleaching the colour, and love the pretty stencilled flowers over the top, and such a great idea to move the stencil and add extra bits to fill it out, and also the added bits of pastel and lead encil with some white pen work too, which has worked brilliantly. x
