How to Make Cards Using Stencils and Paint with Video and Giveaway




Here's another post with one of my new stencils from Stencil Girl Products! 

Today I'm excited to show you how I made some cards with my new "On the Farm" Stencil!  I designed this stencil to so that the elements could be mixed and matched.  I love moving the elements around to create cards.



I experimented with tracing some of the elements lightly onto watercolor paper, and then painting with acrylic inks (although watercolors would do fine too!).


I experimented with stenciling some of the imagery, and then doodling over with Posca markers and Gel pens.



As you can see, I moved the stencil around on my paper to get the arrangements I wanted.  Here's a video to show you the process:


You can also watch Making Cards with Stencils on YouTube.

  10. What great stencils! "On the Farm" is a must-have for me. My son and grandsons raise cattle, and my daughter's children show hogs at the county livestock shows. In the summers my grandchildren come to visit me for "Nonna Camp," and we'll all love making art with these farm animals!
