Reverse Stencil Stamping Bauble Card inspired by Anneke for Paper Artsy
Over on Paper Artsy, Anneke De Clerck made some gorgeous Christmas cards using a wonderful choice of colour combinations using the technique where you paint on the reverse of a stencil and flip it over onto your card and brayer over it to get a negative impression. Well if that doesn't make sense, you can see what she did here! She is fast becoming a favourite designer of mine! I found this technique a little hit or miss but I needed to make some Christmas cards and also I recently bought JoFY's bauble set 27 which I thought would work well. I thought I could use the messed up bits to stamp baubles on and cut them out. I don't have any Tim Holtz stencils and I don't have any Christmas stencils at all so I thought I would use a Paper Artsy one and the circles one seemed to be the most neutral and echoed the shape of the baubles. Please Paper Artsy, would you bring out some Christmas stencils for next year as I do love using your stencils?
I used Lake Wanaka, Cherry Red, Orchid, and Yellow Submarine, and then painted a piece of card with Cherry Red to stamp the bauble on. I know there is no greeting but I didn't want to cover up my background. Heck, people will know it is a Christmas card when they receive it, surely?!
I am entering this into the Paper Artsy challenge, inspired by Anneke.

Am sure that they will realise what it is Lucy. It's a great, vibrant ,happy card. Love the cherry red, need it! XxReplyDelete
Christmas is implied when baubles are on a card Lucy so heck yes people will KNOW it's a Xmas card!!!ReplyDelete
I love to see this technique used depends on the stencil if it works or not for me but again you can't go wrong with circles or dots.
LOVE your vibrant and fun card:-) xxx
Lovely result and yes people will know it's a Christmas card, but if you think a greeting is needed you can always put it inside, which is what I do when I can't bear to hide my backgrounds (happens quite often!)ReplyDelete
Love the bubbles reverse stencilling, it's a great idea, which I'd had it!! Perhaps if we all ask really nicely they'll do some Christmas stencils!ReplyDelete
Fab project Lucy !!ReplyDelete
Absolutely gorgeous Lucy, that stencil works really well with the baubles! xxxReplyDelete

Fabulous card and the background works perfect with the baubles!ReplyDelete
Lucy! I love this background with the baubles! It looks just perfect! Christmas stencils are an excellent idea, though! Perhaps next year some will appear under our Christmas trees! I think this is most definitely a Christmas card and one I should love to receive! xxxReplyDelete
