Reverse of Yesterday's Card

Yesterday I posted this card and explained how it was made (see here):

I had a lot of spritzed red brushos on my stencil after I finished it so before cleaning it up, I flipped it over onto another piece of watercolour paper and used the stencil to do a stencil monoprint background to make this card:

When dry, I added a bit of very pale text stamping and a postmark.  Then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.

I'll link it up with the CAS Watercolour challenge since it is a watercolour technique and it fits the February theme of "Love":

Stamps - Tim Holtz sentiment, text, and postage mark
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black, Adirondack Lake Mist
Paper - watercolour paper, white cs

Accessories - TCW stencil, clear embossing powder, red brushos, fun foam


  1. Wow...Your monoprint stenciled card is Stunning, Susan! You must be pleased that you were able to use your extra ink and end up with such a beautiful background for your wonderful sentiment. TFS my friend. Hugs..

  2. I don't know which I like the best, Susan! The reverse of the stencil is as pretty as the first! Another wonderful sentiment!

  3. I love the reverse mono-print, the watery background is so cool

  4. Susan, I love both of your cards!! Love the reverse stenciling technique!

  5. The monoprint is gorgeous Susan. LOVE all that flowing colour. And a great way to get two amazing card fronts from one inking. LOVE IT! xx

  6. I have been playing with similar techniques today and really enjoyed myself, as it looks like you have too. The most striking card x


Thanks for leaving me a message! I love hearing from you.
