Hello, everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here. Today I'll be sharing two very easy tricks for adding a little more detail and interest to floral stencils.

I started with Watercolor Bouquet Stencil. I added the base into place onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white cardstock and inked through. To ink blend, I used Firefly Crisp Dye Ink for the leaves, Snapdragon Crisp Dye Ink for the large blossom, Wisteria Crisp Dye Ink for the smaller blossom, and Butternut and Pink Pearl Crisp Dye Inks for the large bloom. Once this was done, I added the 2nd layer into place on top. For the second layer, I used Grass Field Crisp Dye Ink for the leaves,  Snapdragon Crisp Dye Ink for the large blossom, Wisteria Crisp Dye Ink for the smaller blossom, and Coral Berry Crisp Dye Ink for the large flower. When this was done, I added detail using Woodless Watercolor Pencil 24 Set. That was the first easy way to add a little detail.

The second way is then to emboss using the stencil. Place the base stencil around the colored image and run it though your die cutting machine using an embossing mat. Its as easy as that to add extra dimension.

The sentiment is from Fancy Greetings Stamp Set.

To see how this card came together please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:

Thanks so much for stopping by! And have a beautiful day.

Beautiful card. No one would guess it was all done using a stencil and some colored pencils. I love the idea of dry embossing the finished flower. Really kicks it up a few notches. Thanks for another great tutorial!
