Welcome back to the fourth and last day of reveals of the April release at Papertrey Ink. Today, we are introducing you to Feathered Friends 22 dies + Cornered: Leaves dies + Brick Wall and Barbed Wire Stencils.
I am finally showcasing the beautiful woven background die which adds such a great textured detail. The tin stitch die that frames the card is another favorite of mine that was released awhile back. I find myself returning to the new Berry Branches stencil set from last month over and over as it's so easy to use and creates gorgeous backgrounds!
1. Add multiple texture details through dry embossing stitches and scallops.
2. Pop up the florals, leaves and sentiment with foam tape to add dimension.
Cut all the parts of the bird from white card stock then blend colors
with brushes or sponge daubers to match the stenciled background colors.

I am also sharing a couple of card using the Brick Wall and Barbed Wire stencils that will be part of the new release.
This is a 2 part stencil and I first stenciled the grout layer using Black Soot distress ink. For the second stencil layer, I applied Distress Texture Paste Crackle which added a lot of texture.

The barbed wire stencil is only one layer. I wanted the wire to be silver so I used a matte metallic silver card stock and then sponged Rusty Hinge and Hickory Smoke distress inks over the stencil. It gives a very subtle background.
