Easy Approach to Hand Painted Cards

Hand Painted Holiday Cards

Hand painted cards for the holidays might be easier than you think. Plus, they can be budget friendly.

How can hand painted cards be easier than you might think?

The answer is stencils. I used Laurie Speltz’s™ Instant Images™ collection  stencils from DecoArt®.  I find the to be a good option for the following reasons:

  1. holiday images are sold in sets
  2. many of the images come in different sizes
  3. design options due to the overlays (you uses them to add details, Hand Painted Cards--Halloween--learn how they can be easier than you might thinksuch as hatsHand Painted Cards for Thanksgiving could be easier than you think.
  4. price is reasonable considering all the images included
  5. acrylic paints make it easy to stitch to the budget because you can mix new colors vs. buying them

The step-by-step instructions can be found in the September 2010 issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts plus tips and techniques on using stencils.
