Stenciled Background Two Ways
March 18, 2020
Hello everyone... Helen is here today. I want to share these couple cards that I created using the stencil in two ways technique with the 4x6 Brick wall Stencil.
This stencil in two ways technique is a fun way to create backgrounds with stencil that you can get the most out of your stencil and ink.
First background is adding the ink directly on the card using stencil and blending brush or bledding applicator.
I die cut couple of the gelli printing cardstocks I have in my stash with the pot, cactus and flowers. Then I cut out the thanks word sentiment from a piece of black glitter cardstock using the word die. I added all the pieces directly on a white card with permanent adhesive glue.
I used Vintage Distress Ink and blending oval brush on the first card. I applied the ink around the die cuts to create the brick wall look. I removed the stencil and did not wipe off the ink on it.
With the ink still on the stencil, I sprayed it lightly with water and then I used it to stamp on a watercolor paper. I pressed the inky stencil on the paper with paper towel. And I got the soft watercolor printed brick wall background for the second background on this card.
I cut and embossed the background panel with one of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added it on a creme card base with permanent adhesive glue. And then I added the sentiment banner on the card with 3D foam tape, and I added the flower (stamped, colored and cut) on the card with the same permanent adhesive.
I hope these cards give you some ideas for Spring cards. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. Make sure to visit us again to see more inspirations from the design team. And...for more stencil designs, check out Clear Scrap Store!
