Stencil it card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Stencil it".

Stencils are one of my favorite tools, so I used 3 of my favorite stencils for this card. I started with the Schoolhouse stencil and Distress Paint Black Soot. Then my second favorite stencil is Tiles. I used this one with Texture Paste. When it was dry I applied a layer of Opal Magic Rose-Gold with a silicone brush. Love the way that looks and make the black turn into gold.


With Infusions (Sunset Beach, Lemoncello and Are You Cerise) I added some color. The effect that Infusions gives with Opal Magic Paint is really cool. But I wanted to add some more contrast so I used Black Knight Infusions for that. That also immediately gives it a more dramatic look. The black letters of the Schoolhouse stencil had disappeared a bit in the background and therefore it was a fun idea to use the smaller size of Schoolhouse stencil with also Distress Paint Black Soot and also in the same spot.
