{week 12} simple stencilling

After last week’s complicated knitting I needed something a little more straightforward. I picked stencilling as it was something I could do with supplies I already had in my overflowing craft room.

I cut out a very simple flower silhouette from some sturdy paper. Ideally you’d use something a little longer lasting like acetate but this week I’m not buying anything new so paper it was.

I mixed some pretty pink acrylic paint, grabbed a sponge and got started (taping down my card and stencil with masking tape first). You don’t want to overload the sponge, or use paint that’s too wet as it will seep under the stencil. I made a set of five notecards with matching envelopes.

Once the paint dried I added some details with a black pen. Very pretty and so simple.
