Hi all - it's Feb 4th and the new CAS Stencil Challenge has been posted over at the blog! Nancy is our hostess this month and her challenge is to use Powdered Inks with your stencil!
(think Brushos, Bisters, Color Bursts, Infusions, Magicals, etc.)
Since it's February - I wanted to make a Valentine as we have a card/craft sale at our church for Valentine's Day. I grabbed an older MFT Graduated Hearts Stencil, Brilliant Red Brushos, Love Notes Die from Reverse Confetti, Perfect Match Stamps and dies and Mix and Mat Hearts die from PTI.
I have a couple of process photos to share - there are also several links to videos using powdered inks over at CAS Stencil for your inspiration.
Sorry for the yellowed photos - the light in my craft room isn't great for photos!
First I laid my stencil over a panel of watercolor paper.
Then I lightly sprinkled some Brilliant Red Brushos over the area, trying to get some inside the hearts (the color will spread anyway)
Then I spritzed water over the stencil.
I removed the stencil quickly and revealed this lovely stenciling!
There was so much watery Brushos mix on my stencil that I flipped it over onto another panel of watercolor paper , laid a piece of computer paper over it and rubbed over the stencil, leaving this negative watery print of the stencil.
(you can see there is still more watery ink on the stencil if I wanted to make another lighter negative print!)
Here are the two cards I made using the negative print of the stencil. For these cards I die cut the background panel using Mix and Mat Confetti die from PTI.
And here's my first card again.
So please join us over at CAS Stencil, and link up your card using stencils and powdered inks! You'll find video links as well as some creative inspiration from the Design Team here. You have until Feb 24 to link up!Stamps: Perfect Match - PTI
