It’s time for another Global Totally Techniques Blog Hop, and this month we are showcasing the Stencil Technique (anything goes as long as it involves a stencil). Make sure you check out what the rest of the design team have come up with, their cards are fantastic.
I must admit I love playing with stencils as you can create some pretty fun and cool effects, the one I am sharing today is quick and easy to do. I started by stamping the block images on watercolor paper and coloured using an aqua painter and re-inkers. I then lightly sponged Crushed Curry ink on some of the background, excluding the area where the blocks are. The stamp set and stencils are both retiring in the next few days so if you want them, make sure you get them while you can.
I then placed the stencil over top (securing it using washi tape) and used my dauber to apply the different colours thru the stencil. I did not dauber as much ink as I got closer to the blocks to create a shaded out effect.
Then it was just a case of removing the stencil, cutting the blocks out and adhering them using the fine tip glue.
