Happy Little Stamper June Stencil Challenge...

Hi! I am back with brand new inspiration for this month's HLS Stencil Challenge.

I created a card with a stencil and Brushos. This is a twofer as I got two cards out of one panel.

I started with a large piece of watercolor paper and taped the Sunflower stencil by CrafTreat on top. I sprinkled the Brushos on top and sprayed with water. I used yellow, green, orange and red Brushos. Once the paper was dry, I replaced the stencil and lightly inked the petals with red dye ink and the flower center with brown dye ink.

I cut the paper into half, getting two card panels. The sentiment is from a very old stamp set which I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I trimmed my panel and popped it up on a dark brown mat with foam and then I adhered the whole thing to a kraft card base.

Here is another look at the completed card.

Here are both the cards.


I hope you liked my card. I look forward to your beautiful creations in the HLS gallery. Do visit the blog for some more inspiration by my teamies.
