Stenciling an Easter Blessings Card
Hello friends and thanks for stopping by the Blog today!
I am excited to share this card I created using the Pysanka Easter Pattern stencil. The stencil is so lovely and would be great as a tone-on-tone background, but I wanted to use it with three of the Candy Coat colors.
I started by ink blending the stencil with colors that matched the Candy Coat I had selected. There is some overlap, but I mostly tried to keep the colors separated by the different patterns of the stencil.
I used a paintbrush with the coordinating colors of Candy Coat in Pink, Green, and Teal. This blends so nicely over the ink and the brush gives it a painterly vibe that looks appropriately organic. The Candy Coat adds texture and a little sparkle!
I used a piece of patterned paper from the Sophisticated Spring Paper Pad as a background and mounted both to an A2 size card base.
I finished off the card by heat embossing the sentiment 'Blessed' in Raven onto a piece of Heat Resistant Vellum. The black stands out as a simple important message and the vellum is a perfect medium for letting the pattern below be seen.
Thanks for checking out this post!
I hope it inspires you to create something for Spring or any season!
SideBar: After Googling Pysanka, it is one of Ukraine's most famous Easter traditions; an intricately designed Easter egg. It symbolizes a couple of different ideas, one of emerging from Winter into Spring (new hope, new life) and the second is the religious idea of Resurrection and the promise of eternal life.
