Next I picked this lovely stamp set again from the store “You are so Enchanting” and stamped the images on a piece of white cardstock, colored them using faber castell color pencils and fussy cut them.
 
 
step5

Select other embellishments to go with your background, like flowers, chipbords, die cuts, pattern papers etc.

Arrange and glue the elements to the cardboard.
 
 
step7

 I added some more texture to the base by applying texture paste to the corrugated sheet, Used shimmer pastes  from the store. These are so good to use for any mixed media project and on any surface!

I had so much fun creating this using Craftyscrappers Shimmer sprays and the effect was  astounding to my surprise!
These Shimmer sprays are water-based and are water reactive too,
which is great to use on paper & other porous surfaces.
They come in fantastic range of Colors.
The shimmer in these sprays adds the touch of beauty to your craft projects.
You can use these directly or you can even mist them
with water to lighten the color variation.
These are ideal for mixed media, DIY & other crafting projects.

  • The other side of the card stock I stenciled with the Create-a-scene(sunburst)stencil with fossilized amber Distress ink.

  • Adhered the photo to it. 
  • I stamped and heat embossed the flower from the “Bloom” mini stamp set with gold EP.
  • Colored the flowers using zig markers and mounted them on the card panel, adding leaves in between. 
  • On a piece of ready tag, I stamped the sentiment, tied a twine through the hole and mounted it on the LO.

BEAUTIFUL STENCIL BACKGROUND: a video tutorial!

Hello friends!
This is Anila, on the Craftyscrappers Blog and Today I have a video tutorial for you all …showing how to use a stencil to create a background for a card. 
FG.jpg
My card mainly focuses on the use of the stencil with distress inks to create your card.
I will be showing a simple distressing technique that will help you achieve clean distressed backgrounds with the stencils.
Craftyscrappers Stencils are high quality stencils,for you to create amazing backgrounds
or highlights on your projects.
These stencils comes in a trendy package and are 6.5×6.5INCH in size thats the Big size and are also available in Mini Sizes, which covers 4×5.5INCH in size,
which makes it easier for you to twist and turn the stencils according to your work surface.
And the most incredible thing about them is, they are pocket friendly.
