Good morning! Ardyth here with one of my favourite products from the May release – the Cosmic Flare stencil!
At first glance this stencil looks like a regular sun-rays stencil, but take a closer look and you’ll see that one half has wider rays than the other.
This gives flexibility to use one end or the other. Or BOTH!
First, blend ink through the stencil as normal. I used darker for the narrower rays, and lighter blue for the wider rays, but you can do it all with one colour if you prefer.
Next, flip the stencil.
Blend the ink through again. If you are using two inks like I did, keep the darker ink on the narrow rays and the lighter ink on the wider rays.
Finally, I blended ink around the edges – this is totally optional, but I felt it helped to fill in some of the stark white areas and give even more of a dimensional look!
I made my card with two green inks to represent the golf course I know my dad can’t wait to get to.
To create my golf ball, I embossed one of the Comic Half Tone Dots stamps onto white cardstock, with white embossing powder. I cut a circle and blended pale gray ink on one side to make it look round.
I finished the card with a golden trophy from the Best Dad set. I used the little DAD cut out and backed it with black cardstock.
