Stenciled 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 "Use More Than One Stencil".

I used 3 stencils for this card. I started with the Schoolhouse stencil and Distress Paint Black Soot. Over that I used Opal Magic Paint in Green-Gold and Violet-Gold. I applied this with an old gift card. Is my new favorite way to apply this paint because of the effect it gives. After the paint was dry, I used my second stencil and again with Distress Paint Black Soot. This time I quickly added some Bonding Powder and used GoPress Gray Foil. And the third and last stencil is the Bubble stencil that I used with Texture Paste.


On top of a surface that is painted, I like working with Infusions, and this time I tried a new color combination, green (Slime and Emerald Isle) and pink (Are You Cerise). Still don't know if I like this color combo ... Maybe I just have to get used to it because it's so different from what I normally use for color combos.
