And one more post for today before I go into my weekend:
The Curtain Call Challenge is about to close, and I created a really simple card for it. But before I share the final product with you, I would like to introduce you to my new technique: 1 stencil - 2 unusual ways!
This is my stencil:
The idea was to tape the stencil to some craft card stock & fill the gaps with white pigment ink (which is very juicy compared to ,let's say, Distress inks). I've done that in a rather 'messy' way as I wasn't going for a perfect result, but rather an arty and individual background.
Once I had enough color on my paper I removed the stencil and let my card stock dry.
Then I had a ton of white ink on my stencil... and I found it a shame to simply wash it off.
So I grabbed another piece of craft card stock and simply pressed it on the top side of my stencil.... see this cool result - I love it!!
See on the left my initially intended background.
And on the right the 'left-over-ink-result' = )
And here is my final creation:
- SSS stencil
- white pigment ink
- Cleary Besotted Happy sentiments
- a very ancient rabbit stamp (this is probably 30 years old)
- woodgrain paper & white vellum
Please go and try this technique for yourself, I'm sure you will love the results!
P.S.: I am also participating in the SSS Wednesday Challenge 'Something New' and the SSS Monday Challenge 'Old and New' with this Card, the 'Fresh Start' Challenge from Inspiration Journal and Case this Sketch.
