Rainbow Spiral Stencil Christmas Card

Rainbow Spiral Stencil Christmas Card

Today I bringing you a Christmas Card featuring the Rainbow Spiral Stencil. I used 4 Simon Hurley Create. Inks.  Two Reds (Love Struck and Game Over) and two greens (Overzealous and Fake Plant).  I started with Love Struck and blended the first stripe.  After I wiped the excess ink off the stencil, I used the lines on the stencil to line up my spiral and then blended with Game Over. I wiped the stencil off again, relined it up with Overzealous and then repeated with Fake Plant.

Continuing to wipe off my stencil between inks, I completed the spiral alternating back and fourth between the red and green inks until my circle was complete.  Next I used some watered down Pearl Aqua Pigment and a paint brush to cover the entire blended area.  This gives the spiral lots of shimmer and shine.

I trimmed the panel to 4" x 5.25" with my paper cutter. Using my scissors, I trimmed out the spiral around the outside and used a circle die to cut out the center.  I adhered the Spiral to and A2 Top folding Card base, lining up the spiral edge with the right edge of my card base. 

Next, I used another circle die to cut some Red Glitterstock for the center of my spiral.  I adhered this with some foam tape.  For a focal point, I stamped one of the elves from Crafty Elves with Raven Detail Ink on Perfect Blend Alcohol paper and colored him in with Copic markers.  After I fussy cut him out, I added some shimmer to the yellow on his outfit and to the red ribbon on the package (also with some watered down Pearl Aqua Pigment).

For my sentiment, I stamped the Merry Christmas from the Snowflake Swirl stamp set with Fake Plant and trimmed it down.  I adhered both my sentiment and elf to the center of the Glitterstock circle with liquid glue.

Finally, I added just a touch of more sparkle with some sequins from my stash.

The Copic Markers I used for some quick coloring on my image are: E000, R20 (Face and cheeks) Green: G28, YG63 Red: R37, R39 Gold: YR24 (belt buckle) Orange: YR09 (hair) Black: C6 (belt)

I did make a video showing how I used this stencil and finished my card.  You can find it over on the Brutus Monroe Channel here.
