{Spotlight Project} Outline Stenciling with Cornelia



Hi, Cornelia here today, featuring outline stenciling.




This is not something I came up with - I got inspired by Renee from Bolton House - quite a while ago and just remembered this again.

My supplies:
   

I started with white card stock and outlined part of the stencil with a fine line black pen.


Moved the stencil a bit and sponged in citrus green - you also see the pen I used.



I decided the card looks kind of empty, so I moved the stencil back to its original position and sponged again - this time a slightly darker shade of green.


Added little orange flowers.


Added the sentiment. I used foam tape for the "birthday" to give it a bit of dimension. I also added orange Stickles to the center of the flowers.



Hope you liked this. See you in two weeks!
