Inked and Stencilled circles

Posted on


Hello everyone and welcome to my first blog for Imagine Design Create. 

This week I got to play with the Circles stencil/mask and I’m in love. Their versatility is endless and I’ve had a lot of fun creating with them.  

hope you like the two samples I’m sharing with you today. 



What you will need to make these cards – 

In addition to these items for my first sample I also used. 

                             Squeezed lemonade 

                             Shaded lilac 

                             Tumbled glass 

                             Black soot 


How to make my first sample – 

  • First using Distress inks and sponge applicators I blended my chosen colour together to create a base, using light circular movements to gradually add colour to my liking. 

  • I next took my Circles stencilblack soot distress ink and sponge applicators and gently blended the black out from the edge of the inside or outside of the circles stencil. I used all the sizes in different orders to create this effect including one I borrowed from the Windows & Shapes stencils and masks set.  

  • I took the happy birthday sentiment from IDC’s Block Sentiments stamp set, I inked the stamp with Versamark ink, stamped it on to a scrap piece of white card and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I then trimmed it down leaving a small white border. 

  • I mat and layered with black card stock and used 3d sticky buds to add my sentiment. 


How to make my seconded sample – 


I hope you enjoyed my first ever blog and feel inspired to get crafty!
