Penguin Palace Challenge #24 – Stenciling

Hello and welcome back crafty friends!

We LOVED seeing your spring color palette inspired projects over the past month and want to thank you so much for participating in Challenge #23.

Now, onto Penguin Palace Challenge #24! This month, our theme is stenciling — as long as it uses a stencil, it counts! Don’t forget to link your projects featuring Penguin Palace stamps below for your chance to win a $25 gift card.

For today’s card, I used a technique I’ve wanted to try for a while — watercolor stenciling! I taped down the Abstract Blossom Stencils 360° to a piece of watercolor paper and traced around the inside of each opening with my Karin markers — in rainbow order of course. Be careful not to be too heavy-handed as the ink can seep under the stencil (but that’s okay, it’s all part of the imperfect/loose look)! Once I had some color down, I removed the stencil and used clean water and a paint brush to blend from the center toward the edges. I added a little bit more ink with my markers as needed.

Next, I cut my card panel down and adhered it to a 5″ x 6.5″ card base. I white heat-embossed a sentiment from the So Blessed stamp set onto black cardstock, and cut it out with the coordinating Penguin Perfect cuts. I also die-cut a few extra and adhered them to the back of my sentiment for extra dimension. Finally, I adhered my sentiment to the center of the card and added some embellishments!

We love seeing your creations and would love for you to join us in this month’s challenge! All you have to do to enter is use the challenge theme (stenciling) to create a project that features at least one Penguin Palace product as the focal point. Full challenge rules can be found here.

This month’s challenge runs until April 29th at 11:59 PDT. We’ll select a winner to receive a $25 CAD gift certificate to from challenge #23 and #24 which will be announced on May 1st at the beginning of challenge #25!

Don’t forget to link up your project below, and if you’re sharing to social media use the hashtag #penguinpalaceprojects! We’d also love for you to share your projects in the challenge album in our Penguin Palace Facebook group!
