Breakout Stencil | Vibrant Cards

Hello and happy Sunday to you! We hope you are having a good weekend. Michelle is here on the blog today with two awesome cards created with our *NEW* BREAKOUT stencil, one of the gorgeous quotes from our new HAPPINESS MATTERS stamp set, and a creative sentiment from our BRIGHTEN THE WORLD set.

Hi friends…. I hope you`ve all been well.  I am back featuring some new products from the latest release from Visible Image!  As soon as I saw this new stencil in the release, I knew exactly what I wanted to do and it turned out just as I had envisioned!  I hope you aren`t sick of seeing this technique yet, because it is one of my faves and will never get old lol.  

I did make 2 cards today, but changed up the colours, the orientation of the stencil and sentiment.  To begin both of them I sprayed the back of the Breakout Stencil and stuck it down really well to a piece of hot pressed watercolour paper.  I used hot pressed, as it has a smoother surface that would be perfect for stamping on later.

When I had first this idea in my head, this was the one that I had wanted to bring to life.  To start I choose a rainbow colour palette of pigment powders.  I sprinkled on the colours in rainbow order, being sure to overlap each one slightly, to have a nice colour blend and then spritzed with some water.  I had actually wanted to do a colour wheel type of look initially, but I was afraid that some colours next to one another might not blend too well.  Once I let the powders sit for about 30 secs and then dabbed off the excess water and powder with a paper towel.  By keeping the stencil on, you don`t run the risk of smudging any excess powder and water that may still be on the paper.  

For the 2nd card, I went with a palette of pinks, although one colour looks more of a coral in the pics.  For this one I also added some black splatters.  I kept the stencil on to dab off any remaining water and powder and added the black splatters.  It was set aside to dry for a few minutes before removing the stencil, so the risk of smudging the splatters would be minimal. 

Both panels were trimmed down and I stamped both sentiments using Onyx Black Versafine Ink and then heat embossed them using black embossing powder. I used the new Happiness Matters Stamp Set for the rainbow card and for the pink ombré card I used the Brighten the World Stamp Set.  Looking back I should have embossed them using clear embossing powder, as I did get some little black flecks of powder…..but nothing too bad. 

I then ran along the edges of both panels using a black marker to add a fine black border.  Both were directly adhered to a white A2 cardbase…..and that`s it!  I  love how these turned out…..they are exactly as I had imagined!  

I love using this simple technique to help to showcase these amazing powders….they really help the stencils to shine and be the main focus!

If you haven’t seen the brand new release from Visible Image, then do check it out… .you won’t be disappointed…. but then again, are you ever with them?!  I think that this stencil may be going into my favourites and I am sure I will be using this over and over again.
