Happy Tuesday Jaderbugs! I am super stoked about this week. I am finishing up on something HUGE and although I can’t tell you now, I promise to share in about a week. I know, I know… You are probably shaking your head at me right!
My good friend Ed Roth designed all of the stencils that I used today. I always look at his stencils and try to figure out what I love the most about them. I finally figured it out. It’s the simplicity of them. So many people think stencils have to be super detailed (don’t get me wrong he has a lot of perfectly detailed stencils) but you get what I mean. It’s the simplicity and repetition of shapes that attracts me the most to his stencils. I have been wondering what I would make with his small stencils and lemme tell you I figured it out. Since I am always mailing notes to friends I figured it would be much better if they opened an envelope to a hand crafted note card. RIGHT!
If you are thinking on the save wave path as me then let’s hurry and get on the stencil train…..or stencil ride…or whatever ride, cause it’s time to do stenciled notecards.
Don’t you love how detailed they are! I just know I will make someone smile with them!
Start by placing the stencil on top of the note card. Gently press one side of the stencil to make sure it does not move.
You can use any stencil you want for this project. When you move to the next section of the note card place the top line of the stencil on the last one that you painted. This will give you consistency overall.
I put a little squirt of each color I am using on my pallet. I love the way dried paint looks.
Make sure to dab in multiple colors when doing one card. You can add a few colors to make it pop.
If you want you can even stencil the envelope!
I hope you enjoyed this crafterooo boo boo! Now off to get some other crafts done. Don’t forget to find me here! Let me know in the comments what color notecard is your favorite. I’d LOVE to know!
