Darkroom Door Stencil Blog Hop




Hi folks!

I'm excited to be part of a blog hop showcasing the new stencils from Darkroom Door. I have a couple of projects to share that I made using the Small Blossom Stencil:

http://www.darkroomdoor.com/stencils-darkroom-door/small-stencil-blossom


First up is an art journal page I created:



It shows the Small Blossom stencil (in white crackle paste) over the blossom image from the Bold Blossoms Rubber Stamp Set (stamped in black).

I also added some detail around the edges with the new Crackle Texture stamp, some spatters and drips with India Ink, and some doodling with a black Fude Ball pen.

Here's a close up:



 My next project is a card:


Here's how I made it:

1 Stamp the new Gazette Texture stamp onto a 9 x 13.8 cm piece of white cardstock using Archival Jet Black ink.


2 Mix some Prima White Crackle Texture Paste with Distress Evergreen Bough reinker and apply this through the Small Blossom stencil with a palette knife. Allow to dry - you will see it begin to crack as it dries.

3 Stamp randomly around the edges with the new Crackle Texture stamp using Archival Aquamarine ink. Mix a little Evergreen Bough reinker with water and spatter and drip this over the piece.
 

4 When this is dry, sponge some Evergreen Bough ink around the edges.


5 Stamp the round tag from the Tags Rubber Stamp Set using Aquamarine ink, then stamp the words from the Orchids Rubber Stamp Set over it using black ink. Punch a hole in the top and tie it to the card front using twine.

6 Mount this onto a 10 x 14.3 cm piece of black cardstock, then onto a folded white card. Stamp the Weathered Stripes Background stamp onto white card using black in, and tuck a little scrap of this to the right of the card front. Apply tiny dots of Stickles around the blossom for extra sparkle.

  23. Teresa you are amazing! I love the aquamarine project when Rachel first posted it. But now....I love the black and white one even more! Thank you for sharing all the steps and I am sure to give it a try. BTW
    Remember the previous one I said I would try ? It didn't work out very well...I know it is because of my watercoloring cardstock isn't thick enough. But I am so happy to learn from you. You are always generous to share the tips!! Thank you!

    Hi Teresa - I have to admit, I haven't seen your blog before, but I just love how DELICATE your card looks, with the colour (...seems to be your favourite, yes? One of mine, too!...) and the blossoms done in the crackle medium through the Darkroom Door stencil; very nice! (I've not used pastes and things like that before, but you may have just inspired me to give it a go! Thanks!) :)
