Virginia's Stencil Sunday #4

Hello friends!
Today is my 4th installment of Stencil Sunday!

I have a fun share with assorted dies, stamps, alcohol ink and stencil, of course.

I used the Leaf Burst Stencil as part of my scene -building.
thanks for being my friend

Sometimes it is just nice to use the supplies for the not-so-obvious reasons.
This is also my first time trying out with Painting with Alcohol Ink!

Yes, I got myself specific paint brushes, color palette just for the alcohol ink.

I must say that it looks different than my normal watercolor. The alcohol inks are usually more vibrant and colorful and this card shows just that.

thanks for being my friend-001

I hope this card brightens your Sunday!

Very pretty Virginia. I don't have any alcohol inks yet (nor many stencils) but I may have to invest in some. Your card is really lovely.

Joy Meadows said...

Very pretty card, Virginia! Love the way you used the stencil.

Love the stencil design! I need to get my alcohol inks out. I have quite a few of them and haven't used them in ages! Love the bold colors!

Isn't that lovely. You really have Spring on your mind. This card simply screams, "bring on the flowers and warmth". Gorgeous coloring and the stenciled "suns" rays are perfect for this sweet garden.

The sun is shining brightly in MI this morning and your card made my day. I long for sun and flowers. Wonderful cheery card.

That's such a pretty stencil and I love the way yo've used it! This is fabulous Virginia!

I love your little flower garden with the vibrant colors. I have one question for you. What tyoe of cardstock/paper did you use with the alcohol inks? It does not look like vellum which is what you typically have used when you do your alcohol ink cards.

Just love your stenciled doily sun, Virginia! Perfect for your little garden scene!!

How pretty your flowers are, with the stenciled sun beaming down, inviting them to bloom and grow! Very clever; very charming! Your stencil series is fun!

Oh, how GORGEOUS!!! I was wondering if I could color with alcohol inks, and now I see how beautifully it turns out! Love your stenciling on this card, too...so soft and pretty!
