Now if you know me, you know I don't like to let anything go to waste. I had quite a few paint-covered stencils during the creation of that card and what is a paint-covered stencil anway? It's a giant stamp.
See the black letters, the yellow bricks and the red flowers. Imagine all that residual value!
And meet yesterdays somewhat meeker cousin...
Just flipped the painted up stencils over onto another piece of card, put a piece of scrap paper on top of it and rubbed the residual paint onto the card. Black, yellow, then red.
And then of course, there was the paint leftover on the palette. Couldn't let that go to waste, so I practiced some hand-lettering of simple words. Definitely not the stuff of stamp designers, but hey, it's real! (said in an Uncle Si tone...)
I cut out the "hi", adhered it to black CS and fussy cut it again. Some wispy thread and two cut-from-vellum-and-stamped-with-Delicata Kesi flower custers later the cousin was dressed and ready to go!
See that wonderful touch of sparkly gold? Yum. That's the Triangles stamp from Kaisercraft, BTW. Great for a tiny, subtle print.
This cousin is joining the other one at the Stencils challenge over at Moxie Fab World. Cuz stencils are definitely moxie fabulous.
Have a good one.
