Especially when the layers in question are Altenew's awesome Layered Medallion Stencils, from The Ink Pad!
These come bundled together, and when you use them together, you can get sooooo many interesting variations, especially if you change up the order in which you layer the stencils. For even more variety, you can do a bit of ink blending too, with Distress Oxides. (Did you know the large set of Picket Fence Studios Blender Brushes is on a great sale at TIP?! Very limited quantities, so hurry, lol!) I tried out quite a few combinations, partially because I just got the brand new color, Crackling Campfire, so of course I had to test it out. As expected, it looks wonderful with all the oranges, reds, yellows and browns in the existing line. Next time I'll throw in some complementary shades, too.
My finished card features Stencil A in Pumice Stone, on top of a fairly dark kraft cardstock. Then I put Stencil B on top and blended out from the center using Aged Mahogany, Crackling Campfire and Worn Lipstick. As it turns out, the two stencils are also absolutely beautiful on their own. So much so that I chose to outline and fussycut some of the individual elements to make a stacked medallion (or mandala...?) and I love the results.
always wants to use as
many colors as possible!
