Today I'm playing along with the stencil challenge at CAS Mix Up.
No prizes for guessing which company's stencil I chose - Funky Fossil of course!
And isn't this In The Tropics a stunner of a stencil? It looked pretty fantastic just with the inking, but adding the traced outline really seems to have given it an extra bit of va-va-boom!
I used two shades of distress oxide for the flowers and two for the leaves, but of course because of the unique blending of the oxides it looks like many more colours. I then picked an orange and green Miya oi pencil and traced round the edges.
I matted it onto a white card base and finished off with a greeting from the Beautiful Inside and Out stamp set.
Stencil: Funky Fossil, In The Tropics
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, picked raspberry, squeezed lemonade, twisted citron, pine needles
Colours : Miya oil pencils
Huge thanks for spending some of your precious time looking at my blog today. I'm so pleased to have had your company.
Stay safe and keep crafting!
