Super quick & easy eBrush stenciled cards

I have been loving my eBrush machine!
Some days I literally search for things to spray with this bad boy! I kid you not! And today I have 2 super easy cards I made using this awesome machine. What made these super quick & easy is that I got most of my design element, the gorgeous background, from the help of a stencil! Yes, you can make you own patterned paper with STENCILS!

I designed this background, believe it or not, using my ecal software and then I cut the stencil out from acetate sheets with my Sizzix eclips machine.

This was just plain white card stock eBrushed with ink from my Spectrum Noir turquoise marker set. I then matted it onto matching colored card stock and adhered it to more white card stock. Then I Wrapped  it in twine and added a felt rosette (quick tutorial can be found HERE). Added then added a sentiment to complete the card.

For this card I used the exact same stencil. I just centered the stencil and eBrushed it with 4 different Spectrum Noir Markers from the Purple color family set(PL2, LV2, PL5, & LV3). I layered them to give them an ombre effect and then simply stamped a cute flower image and sentiment directly over the background. And to dress it up even more I added self adhesive flat back pearls. 

And there you have it... super simple! Honestly, the hardest part of these cards were picking what colors to make them. LOL

If you have a digital cutting machine and would like to cut your own stencil I have made an SVG file of the ornate background HERE. You may download it for free but please do not redistribute my files. Instead, I kindly ask that you to direct individuals to download their own copy from my blog. THANKS!

Now go craft something with your new stencil!! And don't forget your eBrush!!

All digital files and svgs are cut using my Sizzix eclips machine & ecal software.
