Stenciled Heart Valentine | Ink Blending and Texture Paste

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a card that I made with a gorgeous stencil from Brutus Monroe. This stencil comes from this months Stencil of the Month club.


To start, I taped a piece of 6x6 Bristol Smooth paper to a board. I then taped the heart stencil down on top of that. I blended over the stencil with a few colors of Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Squeezed Lemonade.


After finishing the ink blending I used a palette knife to spread some transparent texture paste over the stencil, right on top of the colors. I let that dry for a long time before moving on.


I picked a sentiment from Brutus Monroe’s Love Bug stamp set and stamped it onto vellum with embossing ink. I embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder. I wrapped that sentiment around my stenciled in panel and glued the ends to the back of the panel.


To finish the card I first adhered the panel onto a card base. Then I added a few different sizes of clear sequins with Gina K Connect glue.
