Flowers on Crackle Stenciled Background



You can barely see the stitches on the flowers and leaves, but they are there!!  I would never have tried the stenciled BG with modeling paste if I hadn't taken the Online Stencil Class.  Below is how I created the whole card:

IMAGES, STENCIL, AND DIE CUTS:
  1. Stamped Stitched Flowers 3 times with Golden Glitz ink on white cardstock; painted two completely and one just the flowers with Twinkling H2O's; embossed the leaves and flowers from the back.
  2. Used the Crackled stencil with gold modeling creme applied with a palette knife to white Laid cardstock.  It dries relatively quick.  I left it for 3 or 4 hours.
  3. Die cut two 'hugs' on white cardstock; used leftover negatives from die cuts for exclamation mark; painted one 'hugs'  and exclamation mark with twinks.
  4. Die cut Romantic Rectangles Two large, smallest, and next to smallest from white cardstock.
  5. Cut two BGs (one for front and one for inside middle) from Crackle BG.
  6. Die cut for inside top and bottom edges and envy using largest die with Crackle BG.
ASSEMBLY:
  1. Mounted Crackle BG to largest die cut; mounted first flowers with glue dots and leaves with 3D pop-dots; mounted second layer of flowers with glue dots in centers and 3D pop dots on petals; added Viva Decor Ice Pearl Pen to flower centers.
  2. CARD FOLD:  Used a pencil to mark edges of largest die cut near die center; measure twice the length; cut and folded and applied to the back of the Card front.  It still stands just fine by itself.
  3. Added die cut edges to inside top and bottom; applied Crackle BG to next to smallest die cut; mounted to inside top center; added bow to bottom.
  4. Watercolored edges of center embossed area on smallest die cut; double decked with painted 'hugs' on top and mounted to smallest die cut; mounted that to front lower right; applied sequins with GA here and there.
  5. Divided pieces of die cut edges and mounted to lower left of envy.

That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by to look and share!!
