The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Stencils/Masks

It's our Grandson's thirteenth birthday tomorrow and ideas for a card were a bit thin on the ground. I've made computer and fishing related cards in the past for him so I decided on something that fits this week's Craft Barn challenge which is to use stencils on a project.

I sprayed some watercolour paper with Dylusions and water and then sprinkled rock salt over the top. The salt didn't leave really leave much of an imprint of their presence, so a bit of practice is needed with that technique. I then stencilled the arrows and dots with Fresco paint. The star was stamped and embossed with gold powder and fixed to the card with foam pads.


I needed something to enclose some money as a present, so with the remaining background paper I made a little "note" book. I've put a pocket on the inside cover to tuck in some money.

Thirteen and onwards is a difficult period especially for boy cards. I got some music themed stamps especially for those occasions as even if they don't play an instrument they all love music! I hope your grand son likes your card, it has a lovely background and the arrows framing the star is a great motif, it adds movement.

A perfect card for your Grandson's birthday. I love the bright citrus colours. A great idea.

What a wonderful card. Perfect for your Grandson. 13 is a difficult age to make a card for especially for little men. You did a brilliant job. The white paint you used with the stencil gives a great coverage.
Take care,
