Stenciled background card ideas

Hi everyone! I am playing around with stencils for an online stencil class I am taking and here are a couple cards I've made with the backgrounds.

First up is a simple stenciled background using the Twinkle stencil by Spellbinders. I used 3 colors and when they over lap each other you end up with 5 colors. I used a pink, blue and green -I blended the pink at the top, blue in the center and green along the bottom. When they mix with each other there is a gorgeous purple and teal color that appears.

The daisies and butterfly is from the new Stampendous Hello Butterfly stamp set which is part of the spring 2023 collection. I colored them with copic markers and fussy cut. I didn't want to cover too much of the background, so I added slim profile sentiments from the Wonderful Script Sentiment die set.

Next up is a pretty background make with the Gina K Designs stencil called Snowflake Mandala. Once again I used 3 colors of ink -teal, yellow and pink. After I stenciled the colors, I used a thin layer of gel medium mixed with Sparkle Dust glitter. The gel is almost clear, so the ink shows through only slightly muted. The result is so pretty!

Supplies used on these cards:
 Twinkle stencil
Hello, Friend Sentiments Glimmer (for the "friend" and "you are")
Gina K Inks in Medium Orchid, Powder Blue, Lucky Clover (Daisy card)
Turquoise Sea, Sweet Corn, Bubblegum Pink (Mandala card)
Glossy black cardstock for the sentiments by Simon Says Stamp

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

    (I suggested a vertigo remedy to you a few years back and I pop in once in awhile to leave a comment... I follow your blog so I always check out your lovely projects. I hope you have had no more episodes of vertigo!)

  2. Thank you Denise! Yes, I remember you and your vertigo advise. Thankfully I have not had anymore episodes like that. Hugs to you!

    1. yay... glad to hear it! I've wondered if you remained free of the symptoms. I have also been without vertigo issues for a long time, and am very thankful for that!
