Globecraft & Piccolo Stencil card



Morning Lovelies, today is Globecraft & Piccolo day.  
I wanted to show you an that Piccolos have lots of uses, and one of the ones i love is that you can use them as a stencil. 
I have used ATC Bubble Background which i have to confess is my favorite Piccolo at the moment. 


I then took a 4.5 x 5 card blank , a black strip of card cut to 2 x 5 and a strip of watercolour card cut to 1.9 x 5


For the next step you need a temporary adhesive to hold your "stencil" in place, I always use Crafter's Companion Stick and Spray. 


Spray one side of your Piccolo "stencil" and position on the watercolour card. 


Pick your medium you wish to use to add colour, I swear by Dylusions, but it is totally up to you. 


Be as creative as you wish and apply your colour, I run a heat tool over the area before i remove the Piccolo, and then VERY carefully remove the Piccolo, I have found removing the paper from the Piccolo is the best way. 
And of course you now have a pretty coloured Piccolo :) 


Once fully dry rub away any excess adhesive and glue to your black strip and then adhere this to your card blank. I then rounded off the bottom two corners and added a simple sentiment. 
And here is the finished card, you could be so creative with this method. 

Items used: 
4.5x5 Card Blank 
Watercolour Card 
Black Cardstock
Dylsusions Ink Sprays 
Crafter's Companion Stick & Spray 
Sentiment Stamp. 

Happy Crafting
