Easter Greeting Cards

I just finished a small collection of Easter greeting cards, using several techniques covered in earlier posts that included step-by-step photos.

One of these techniques was to spread light modeling paste thru a stencil -- then while the paste was still wet, I sprayed on liquid colors.  Next, I lifted off the stencil and right away put it into a water-filled basin.  I don't mind stencils stained with paints, but I don't want modeling paste to dry on my stencils because it can interfere with the crisp clean lines of the design.

Another technique I used was to simply spray thru the stencil itself, without using modeling paste.

And another was to use Distress Ink pads and a brush applicator to apply color thru the stencil openings.  

On some cards, I added several layers of spray colors, choosing a different color each time and allowing dry time between layers.
