Hi lovely crafty friends, today I have more fab techniques with stencils. Stencils are so cool and so versatile and affordable and I basically love them so here are 5 more things you can do with stencils.
I am going to show you 5 different techniques with stencils and if you haven’t seen the 5 Ways to Use Stencils video yet, make sure to check it out. The techniques are very doable for all crafters beginner to advanced so be sure to watch the video to see all techniques in action.
This video is part of another collaboration, this time with Ingrid Blackburn, she’s super talented crafter and a lovely lady with an amazing YouTube channel so make sure to check out her video for 5 more techniques, it’s linked in my video description.
Technique One Art Crayons blending
The first technique is Art Crayons blending, the American Crafts Art Crayons Set 1 Warm ( SBC ) are water soluble and easy to blend with sponge or your finger.
I doodled around the flowers with a POSCA Black Paint Pen ( JGG ) and a Sakura Micron Pen ( SBC | CST ) I used the Tonic Studios – Sentiments Strip Die Set – Hello ( SBC | CRF | CST | TNCUK | TNC ) for the sentiment In two colours.
Technique Two Colour Trapping
For this card I used Ranger Ink – Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads – Dried Marigold( SBC | CRF | JGG ) to colour the background and the Dylusions Stencil – Sugar Lumps – Small ( SBC ) to create the pattern.
For the sentiment I used the Tonic Studios – Sentiments Strip Die Set – Hello ( SBC | CRF | CST | TNCUK | TNC ) and some fun accents with Nuvo – Crystal Drops Gloss – Caribbean Ocean ( SBC | CRF | CST | TNCUK | TNC )
Technique Three Shimmer Powder
For the sentiment I cut it three times out of Craft Perfect Weave Textured Card Teal Blue ( CST | CRF | TNCUK | TNC ), Ocean Blue ( CRF | CST | TNCUK | TNC ) and Craft Perfect Ultra Smooth Card ( CRF | CST | TNCUK | TNC ) and glued them together a bit off set so the layers show.
Technique Five Layered Ink
This ink is opaque so the
previous colour would be covered when adding another
colour over it but when you add it with lighter pressure
when applying you can see more layers. I used the Dylusions Stencil – Sugar Lumps – Small ( SBC ) again and you can see the different looks you can get with just one stencil.
I cut the Tonic Studios – Sentiments Strip Die Set – Thanks ( SBC | CST | CST | TNC ) out of fun foam or craft foam and once out of Craft Perfect Glitter Card Welsh Gold ( CRF | CST | TNCUK | TNC ) and glued them together, this gives you instant dimension and the yellow from the foam is visible from the sides which fits right in with the colour scheme.
