When Stencils made a come back I wasn't all that into using them. Not sure why really, I like to stamp and color my images with watercolor pencils and stenciling just didn't seem to fit my creativity world. Well, then on 2 different occasions people sent me stencils and then I actually bought a stencil and now I'm diving in.
As it turns out there are 2 challenges this week where we are inspired to use stencils:
Less is More - week 229 - Theme - Stenciling
AAA Cards - game 42 - Paste and/or Stencils
I used the "ghosting" technique described by Anita on the Less is More blog. You ink your paper (I used 3 different inks on each card), you then lay your stencil over the inked paper and spritz with water. You wait 30 seconds and dab the paper with a paper towel.
I love the effect this gave to my 2 cards and am so happy Anita's pretty card inspired me to try this technique.
Happy you stopped by today, stencils are now on my radar :)
