Stencil Tutorial by Eva Dobilas

Hi there, this is Eva today and I have a fun card to share with you.  I decided to pull out Samantha's Creative Imaginations Stencils and used them with Creative Imaginations Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mists.  Here is my finished card, where I also used Samantha's beautiful Spellbinders Antique Frame and Accents and the sentiment came from her Unity Stamps Co. stamp set called Emcompassed Grace.

So first I started with my background piece, and I cut a 5.25" x 5.25" piece of white card stock, laid my stencil on it and sprayed it with the mist.

And here is what it looks like after removing the stencil.  I distressed my edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, which is my to go distress color and I actually used that on all the pieces.

Here is the heart stencil I used.

And here is the beautiful pattern showing off, after I pulled off the stencil.  Once it dried, I cut the image out with decorative scissors.

Finally I used this beautiful stencil to spray.

And here is what it looks like.  Once again, I cut out the shape, as that is what I wanted to use.

Finally, here is the close up of my finished card.  I added some twine and a pretty Petaloo flower with leaf and some pretty Creative Imaginations bling.  

Hope you enjoyed this little walk through on how I created my card using Samantha's beautiful products.  Have you tried her stencils??
