Hero Arts Asian Flower Stencil Faux Bleaching Thank You Card


It’s my turn to post my card here at a2z Scrapbooking.

I started by using my ink blending tool and distress inks (wilted violet, barn door, abandoned coral, picked raspberry, carved pumpkin) randomly on a 96 lb bristol card panel. It’s important to either use watercolour paper or heavyweight bristol. I chose bright colours to go with the current challenge here at a2z Scrapbooking – “Bright and Beautiful”.  I pulled out my Hero Arts Asian Flower stencil, spritzed it well, with water. I placed the stencil, water-side down onto the inked panel. I let the stencil sit for a bit to permit the distress inks under the stencil to get “bleached”. I carefully lifted the stencil and with some paper towel, mopped up any puddles of water. I trimmed the panel down and added an orange panel, stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts Color Layering Fuchsia. To complete the card, I added a thin purple strip of cardstock.
