I put my Vagabond machine to work cutting lots of leaves for 12 class members...
and had these leftovers from the modeling film that I thought would make a perfect stencil. I cut a few extra leaves to keep for myself too.
I made this Fall card pretty quickly. Although I didn't photograph the steps, it was really easy.
First I laid down a few cut-out leaves and started spritzing a little alcohol ink in a mister over the card base which was a plain white piece of cardstock. I used a few different warm colors.
Then I dried that layer well.
I laid down the stencil and using a felt pad on the felt handle tool, I squeezed in some warm alcohol ink colors and started tapping the felt into the stencil areas.
Finally, I took a blending foam tool with Wild Honey ink and rubbed it over the whole card to add more warmth. A final spritz of Perfect Pearls Bronze over the whole card and I was happy.
Prima flowers, Tim Holtz die-cut leaves, Close To My Heart ribbon, and some lace pulled the whole thing together nicely.
I cleaned off the stencil with some Alcohol Blending Solution and stored it away for another day.
