For my last post, I've tried to capture on paper the very beautiful wisteria blossoms that adorn the exterior of the Filoli Estate not far from where I live. It's an amazing display and I've even taken wisteria pruning classes there in the hope that my one plant will aspire to grandeur.
Here's what you'll need:
Translucent Embossing Paste DEPT
Palette Knife DPK
Paste Spreader LM2010
Ink (your choice)
Ribbon or other embellishment of your choice
Here's what to do:
Position stencil on card stock and apply color in light shades to wisteria blossoms only. This will create the background and give depth to the image. Clean stencil and reposition it a little higher and to the right of the wisteria blossoms you just colored. Apply ink in darker shades to blossoms and leaves. Remove stencil and clean it. Reposition stencil over blossoms and leaves and tape on all sides. Using palette knife, put some translucent paste on paste spreader and spread evenly over stencil. Remove stencil and set card aside to dry (paste will dry clear). Return unused paste to jar; wash and dry stencil, palette knife and paste spreader. Adhere card to mats. Add ribbon or other embellishment and adhere to card front.
