Acrylic Flower

Hello Everyone,

For today I am playing along with multiple challenges with one card. I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches, Seize the Birthday, CAS on Sunday and Color Throwdown. Here is my design for today, enjoy.


A simple ombre line balances the design of the card.
Stenciled the flowers using acrylic paint to go over the ombre black panel
The black diagonal panel was masked off and then sponged
to create an ombre effect.

Added just a bit of dimension by popping up the 'happy' sentiment.

Challenges Entering:







Today the sun is out and all is bright showing signs that Spring is in the air. Which is good because this card is loaded with color and yet, I believe, still has that CAS feel.. Acrylic paint was used for stenciling because I couldn't think of any other medium that would cover black. Nevertheless, I think it was a good choice for the black accent because it allows the color from the flower to pop! 

Well that should do it for me.. I do hope you enjoyed your visit and want to thank all of you who have commented on my previous posts.. It lets me know I may be on the right track.. Now I must be off to clean my craft table. It looks like a bomb went off.. 

All the best,
Shawna

I would never have thought to use acrylics through a stencil, so thank you for the inspiration. I love learning new Technics x The colours you've chosen are so perfect, as is your layout. Colouring embossing paste would have covered it too but you've always got to be careful what re-acts to what, as I am sure you know but I am loving the acrylics...will be trying that next, thank you x

This is a GORGEOUS card! I was wondering how you got those beautiful colors over the black! I thought it was stamping on acrylic paper...but stenciling is GENIUS! So striking!!

Your card is beautiful. So creative to use acrylic paint so that you could get the coverage over the dark panel. I love it.
