Hey Friends! It’s EK, and I have been playing around with cardmaking, molding paste, and stencils lately. I find that one of the best collection of stencils for this technique is the line from Ilse and Charlene with their vivid detail and clean lines.
Step One: Onto heavy cardstock, push heavy molding paste through the Spring Flower Mandala stencil. Peel back the stencil and let dry. Make sure to wash the stencil before any of the molding paste dries.
Step Two: Spray liquid ink onto the cardstock. I used a collection of Lindy’s Starburst Sprays. Let ink dry.
Step Three: Polish the ink off the molding paste. Splatter the ink once more onto the paper so it pools in a few places. Let dry.
Step Four: Push more molding paste through one of the stencils from the Pattern Stencil Pack stencils over the ink in several spots. As the paste dries it will absorb the color underneath.
Step Five: Hand stamp the texture stamp from the Make A Wish stamp set with black ink onto the cardstock.
Step Six: Die cut the cardstock using the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut cardstock to an A2 card frame.
Step Seven: Stamp two feathers from the Make a Wish stamp set onto some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock with black ink.
Step Eight: Fussy cut out the feathers.
Step Nine: Using alcohol markers, color the feathers. I used copics in both Violet tones and Blue Violet.
Step Ten: Adhere the feathers to the card frame using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Eleven: Die cut a sentiment from the Words 2- Think of You die set. Adhere the sentiment to the card frame.
I just love the way the metallic spray inks reflect around the molding paste of the Mandala stencil.
