Stenciling Homework

I finally used the NBUS stencil I bought a while back.



I CASED a card by the very talented Debby Hughes using different colors and a flower instead of a sentiment on my vellum tag.

My sequins are iridescent and want to look purple in all the photos, but I assure you they aren't.  I actually colored them with a Copic marker and they're pink IRL.

This was actually my second try with this stencil.  The first try was too dark and I needed to try again with a lighter hand.  I was much happier with this try.

I don't often think about vellum, but I love the dreamy quality it adds.
Maybe I'll find some time to do some more class homework.

This is beautiful, Bonnie. I'm glad you finally got to try out one of the techniques. I'm understand what you mean about a light hand. I need to practice that, too.

Oops, hit "publish" as I was proofreading. It should say I understand, not I'm. ;)

Fabulous, Bonnie! Like you, I don't use vellum enough but it really does add a soft element to cards. Love the colors you've used!

Beautifully done, Bonnie - you achieved a lovely soft look. The online stencil class was such fun and I learned a lot from it.
