JAI #373: Just Add Stencils

Hi!

Welcome to a new challenge from Just Add Ink!


This week Karren has challenged us to use stencils in our card making. There are so many ways to use stencils - you can use embossing paste with them, sponge or mist through them, or even brayer over them.


After a bit of thought, I decided to try a new to me technique. Not sure what it's called, but I really enjoyed it!

To get this look, I placed my stencil over some Shimmery White yardstick and then used my 0.01 Journaling Pen to outline each of the shapes in the stencil. It's a retired stencil from the last Holiday Catalogue in the Seasonal Masks pack. I then removed the stencil and used my Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pen to colour each shape.

I picked a point on my card, which was the top left corner. I used my Pencil to colour the section of the drop shape that was closest to that point, and then blended away from the point with the Blender Pen.

I used a small piece of Shimmer White that I've coloured the same way for the inside. I had only intended to trace a few of the drop shapes in each corner, but Ada insisted I needed to bring in the ribbon from the front of the card, so she made sure I did the inside 'right'. LOL.

The rest of the Design Team have had a marvellous time adding stencils to their cards this week. You can pop on over to the Just Add Ink blog to see what they've done. I hope we inspire you to play along with Karren's challenge this week.

Bye for now,

Tina
