Rainboots Themed "Happy Spring" Card

VersaMagic inks have a longer drying time so they are perfect to use with stencils where you can use multiple colors, and even blend them if desired. I love to use stencils, but I really don't like to waste the ink that is left on them. Rather than clean the stencil, I like to lightly spritz the inked side of the stencil, flip it over, and place it on the second piece of cardstock creating a watercolored panel. See how I created two cards with the same stencil!


Two spring themed handmade greeting cards featuring rainboot images.
VersaMagic in Aegean Blue, Niagara Mist, Purple Hydrangea, Perfect Plumeria, and Thatched Straw.
Step 1

Tape a stencil to white cardstock. Ink with VersaMagic in Aegean Blue, Niagara Mist, Purple Hydrangea, Perfect Plumeria, and Thatched Straw. Remove the stencil.


Step 2

Lightly spritz the inked side of the stencil. Place the stencil, inked side down, on the second panel of white cardstock and tape in place. Brayer over the stencil to release the ink.


Step 3

Remove the stencil and let both panels air dry.


Brilliance in Graphite Black, stamp two pairs of boots and two "Happy Spring" sentiments
Step 4

Using Brilliance in Graphite Black, stamp two pairs of boots and two "Happy Spring" sentiments. Emboss with Imagine's Embossing Powder in Clear.


Fussy cut the boots and color with different colors of Memento Markers.
Step 5

Fussy cut the boots and color with different colors of Memento Markers.


Step 6

Mat one stenciled panel with yellow cardstock and one panel with blue cardstock. Adhere each panel to a kraft paper card base. Double mat the sentiments and add to the cards with foam adhesives. Adhere the boots to the cards with foam adhesives. Use On Point Glue to adhere the gems to the boots.
