Bearded Iris by Alison Heikkila


  1. Emboss Bearded Iris Stencil using White Embossing Paste and a Palette Knife. Let dry.
  2. Place stencil back on to dry image, and ink using assorted dye based inks from Tsukineko. You can use as many or as few colors as you like. I used 2 greens for the foliage, and a yellow and purple ink for the flower. Use the Picasso Tool to mask the areas you don't want colored, or to single out the areas you do want colored. Tear around the edges.
  3. Take a sheet of Mixed Media paper, the Cathedral Windows Small stencil, and the Lavender Tea Memories Mist and spray the stencil on to the paper. Take the stencil and flip the now- sprayed side on to another portion of the paper. You now have a positive and a negative of the stencil. I used the negative for my card. I cut it out and rounded the corners.
  4. I cut the 2nd smallest Labels 24 die from Spellbinders out of Mixed Media Paper. I kept the die in place and dry brushed the same 2 shades of green that I used for my Iris foliage in a circular motion with my stencil brush, keeping the edges darker than the center. When you remove the die, you have a clean white border.
  5. Cut out a piece of pale yellow cardstock to 9-3/4" x 6" to make your card base. Fold in half. Glue all components to the card base.
