It's Thursday and that means, it's time for some stenciling! Today, I'm showing you another oldie but goodie! The reindeer on the left were pasted in black and then foiled using the metallic leafing. The Let It Snow stencil was pasted in purple (no, they don't have purple - you have to make it!) and then clear glitter was added for a beautiful effect!
Wanna know how to make purple? Add a little bit of dark purple (highly pigmented) paint to your white/pearlescent or glossy white paste and mix together until blended well. No need to go to town on the blending either, just folding the color in will work nicely. You can create 1000's of different colors now! Heck, you might be able to create 1000's of different shades of purple! Go ahead, try it!
This was a class I offered last year and they were really just about the techniques, no design elements to the cards, it was all techniques. I believe that everyone in class got a chance to use several different stencils we had available.
I hope you have some time to craft this Holiday Season! Have a very Merry Christmas and we'll be back next Thursday with some more designs!
