I have one project to share today using my favorite new stencil set called Flower Bunch Simple Layering Stencils. Let's get started!

Altenew FlowerBunchSimpleLayeringStencil1I wanted to keep my card clean and simple as always, so I went with a white card base. To kick it up a notch, I added just a little bit of texture with one of this month's new stencils called the Narrow Brick Stencil. I love the little bit of texture it added to the card base.

Altenew FlowerBunchSimpleLayeringStencil2Next, I stenciled all 4 layers with different ink sets. For the leaves, I used Green Meadows Crisp Dye Ink Oval Set. The yellow blooms were created using Summer Afternoon Crisp Dye Ink Oval Set, and the purple buds were blended up with Shades of Purple Crisp Dye Ink Oval Set. I did a quick fussy cut so I could pop the image up for some dimension on the card front. To finish it off, I added a sentiment from Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set, heat embossed on black cardstock, and then added in a smaller strip for added contrast.
