Greetings my spooktacular fiends! It’s Day 30 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Eek! It’s almost the end. Today I am sharing a card that uses a stencil I used in the beginning of the month, but in a totally different way. I know that some folks are a little intimated by stencils, so my goal was to show you a simple way to use them that gives a cool effect.
I used the Broom Flight stencil from Stampendous. All the possible colors that can be used and some of the smaller spaces may get some people a little anxious. But by simply spraying one side of the stencil and pressing it in to watercolor paper, you can achieve fast look. I used Cut Grass and Crushed Grape Dylusions Spray, with a teensy bit of Metallic Orange Memories Mist for a bit of a shine.
My card base, which is black, has Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Gold brushed around the border. On the stenciled layer, I also dripped some Tuxedo Black Fireworks! Spray. But, I wanted some dimension and an added surprise of glow. I have the Nuvo Drops Blue Glow so I added them randomly. Check this out!
Isn’t that fun? The Drops absorbed some of the Dylusions color so they no longer look blue in the light, except for that one drop by the broom that looks lit up. But the overall effect is still fabulous, I think. No need to do anything else to this card. I had it made in about 10 minutes. Not bad, right?
