Greetings! My card today used the beautiful and delicate-looking Pointed Lace stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. I really love this stencil, and you’ll see it a couple of times this month, but this card is the first thing I made with it.

I grabbed my 6×6 Gel Press Plate and applied some Prussian Blue Hue paint to it. I rolled it out with my 6″ Brayer, then laid the stencil on top. I gabbed a piece of paper, and picked up the paint that was in the negative space around the stencil. Then, I picked up the stencil and added some Unbleached Titanium paint on top. Using a piece of old sheet music, I pulled the print. I love how it looks dimensional and still delicate.
I tore the side of the print and found some rich, deep blue cardstock in my stash (it’s my favorite blue cardstock, and I am running dangerously low) to mat the right side of the card base with. I added one of the sentiments from Pinkfresh Studio’s Perfect Sentiments Stamp and Die. I wanted to add a touch of glam, so I die cut an organic-shaped strip and teeny dots from Tim Holtz’s Abstract Elements die set out of gold cardstock. It was just enough to step up the card.
I really love this monoprint. I like how the sheet music shows through in a subtle way, and how the print itself almost looks like carved stone.
