Online Stencilled Class Day 1

Published January 28, 2014 by isisimaginings

Hello, I hope everyone’s had a good Tuesday, thanks for the kind comments on my blog posts last night. Much to my delight, my friend Sarita in California gifted me a place on Stencilled, the new class from for Christmas. Class finally began last Friday & we’ve had four days of fantastic video tutorials. I’m two days behind, but I’ll be making more cards over the next few days & at the weekend too, no doubt. Here are my cards from Day One; Inking & Misting.

I had a lovely time making the first six cards but when I came to the final lesson from Day One I got stuck.  The lesson was all about layering stencils & my first effort is so atrocious that I am NOT exposing it to public ridicule. My second attempt is MUCH better. Well, I think it is.

I started with layering the Crafters’ Workshop reverse honeycomb stencil over the Blazonry stencil & applied Shaded Lilac DI. I got a very uneven result, which I wanted. I removed the honeycomb stencil & applied Weathered Wood DI through the Blazonry stencil. Then I sat & pondered until I thought of this flower stencil by Wendy Vecchi. I’m not exaggerating when I say that the clouds parted & the angels sang (well, maybe a little….) as it all suddenly became clear & I knew what I was going to do…….

I coloured the flower with Wendy’s Cornflower Blue & Fern Green Archival inks, applied Scattered Straw DI through the CWS Tile Texture stencil & used the cap of my spritzer bottle with Fired Brick DI to make the circles. I added the greeting (Inkadinkado, I think) & voila, finished! I like this card A LOT & I thoroughly enjoyed the first day of class.

Thanks for looking, I’ll be back tomorrow night with my cards for Day Two.

  • Love your cards…I made me using Timmy’s splatter it..sent a pic to you of was my pleasure to gift the class to you..:-)

  • All your cards are very cool Kirsten!

    Love the Dylusions Spray with the ombre technique & the white embossing looks phenominal.

    Your layering stencils card works brilliantly along with that stunning stamp:-) xxx

  • What a great sounding class! I wish my pc would play videos properly (I think it’s poor internet connections) I’d love to do this one. LOVE your cards – all of them, but especially the last one.

  • Morning Kirsten 🙂 all of your cards have turned out lovely…looks like you are having al ot of fun doing this class, what a lovely gift!! Looking forward to seeing more xx

  • Really beautiful cards, Kirsten… I thought I should do the days in order rather than catching up backwards, so I’ve come to Day 1 first. The first six cards are fab (the Distress Inks are my favourites), but the layered stencilling on the third card completely steals the show for me – simply glorious!
