Birthday card featuring New Love stencil and Note to Self Stamp from Polka Dot Orchard

My card for today is made using the recent releases from Polka Dot Orchard The stencil With Love (square stencil) and stamp set Note To Self both pictured above.

Hi friends, what wet weather we are experiencing just now, it’s definitely perfect for spending time in our craft rooms. Today I have made a card using the Tone on Tone Technique with Stencil.

I printed off the stamp and sentiment onto Neenah Solar Crest Card and coloured in with Spectrum Noir Illustrators. Pens used, Black, Poppy, Coral, Deep Coral, Mimosa, Begonia, Tea Rose, Rose Blush, Cream, Emerald, Meadow, Brown Grey, 6,2 Blender Pen.

After colouring I fussy cut around the image and cut the sentiment out using my guillotine.

For my background, I used the With Love Stencil which was designed by Angie Blom. I got out my Altenew Crisp Dye Ink in Razzleberry, Rubellite & Pink Diamond. I wanted to use the Tone on Tone Technique where I first create an ombré effect with my 3 colours, starting with the darkest to the lightest. Once I had finished this I then positioned my stencil in place with low tack masking tape then once again using my blender brushes I went over my background with the same colours following their blending and that creates the tone on tone effect.

Once dry I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen to some of the stencilled love hearts. Layered onto black card then onto my card base. Attached foam tape to my image and sentiment. Added some sequins to finish my card.

Loved colouring her in. This set is perfect for many occasions. Click on the links at top of my blog to take you direct to the stamp and stencil.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I would love to hear your comments.

Keep safe my friends and happy crafting
