I am a keen dragon boater and this year I was tasked with making thank you cards for our coaches, steers etc. I saw this awesome 9x12" stencil from Stencil Girl Products.
These are the four cards I made. They are all 5x7" and used a variety of techniques and substances :
This one is a stamped background in distress ink, then I used peacock feathers distress ink through the stencil. I then added some white craft ink and outlined the dragon in black :
This is white molding paste on a black card stock through the stencil. When it was dry I put the stencil back in place and added versamark, then shabby pink Stampendous embossing enamel, which I heat set. Its so glittery and I love the texture.
The marbled background on this card is created with the shaving foam technique. When it was dry I used the stencil with Wendy Vecchi's translucent embossing paste.
For this dragon card I painted the background with acrylic paint, then I mixed up some thick gloss medium with acrylic paint. I added some brown distress ink and rubbed away at it a little to give this grunge/distressed look.
And the final project is actually a wooden canvas. This is the team motivational saying from the 2014 season, what our steer's man would say to us just before a race. In other words, bring it girls !
Here is a close up of the head. I used Lindys Stamp Gang starburst sprays in the background and then with the stencil I used Wendy Vecchi crackled texture paste. I love the texture I created with the pallet knife and all the little cracks. I colored this with wild honey and vintage photo distress stain.
