Three Colorful Backgrounds With Polka Dot Buds Layering Stencil Set

by Aga

Hello, everyone! It's Aga here today with three cards created with Polka Dot Buds Layering Stencil Set. It’s a great set that features two stencils – both can be used on their own to create a simple background or combined to create a multi-colored retro pattern. With a few simple steps, you can now get gorgeous layering images with very little effort.

Card 1

I started my first card by applying Olive and Dusk Crisp Dye Inks with Ink Blending Tools over the first layer. Then I applied the second layer with Moss Crisp Dye Ink. I added black ink splatters while my stencil was still in place.

To finish my card, I die cut my sentiment using Fine Alphabet Die Set out of white cardstock and used Desert Night and Dusk Markers to color the letters in. I combined it with sentiments from Watercolor Dots Stamp Set.

For my second, I used Pinkalicious and Rubellite Crisp Dye Inks for the first layer. Next, I slightly shifted the second layer up for a different kind of pattern. I again used Moss Crisp Dye Ink for leaves, and I applied black ink with a cotton swab. I also stamped a small dotted stamp from Watercolor Dots Stamp Set with Rubellite Crisp Dye Ink.

To finish the card, I added letters die cut using Fine Alphabet Die Set colored with Fresh Lemon and Maple Yellow markers from Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set F and combined it with a sentiment from Thinking of You Stamp Set.
