Welcome to Day 3 of the Sunny with a Side of Sparkle Blog Hop! I'm celebrating with the new Catherine Pooler Release and really showing off four awesome ways to get the most out of your stencil! I created four fun cards with backgrounds.
Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs. 5 lucky winners will be chosen to win two ink pads! And you don't want to miss out on these!
The two cards below are very simple examples of stencilling. Secure your stencil in place and ink it up. The first example I used Tiki Torch by itself and for the second one, I blended out using Party Dress Ink to keep things exciting. You can use so many colours when blending and switch up directions to create something different like stripes!
As I moved on, I created more complex designs like multi-coloured backgrounds. The flowers background I created by flipping the stencil over (make sure you clean the stencil first!)
I really had no idea that the stencil would be so pretty and mandala-like when flipped! I thought it was going to be a hot mess. I just love happy surprises!
I love how the stencil didn't fit perfectly over top (or was it just me lol?!) Those white lines make the colours pop even more off the page! I think the sentient it also super fun and comic-book like!
Your next stop is Laurel Beard, a very good crafty friend of mine so be sure to head over and leave a lovely comment!
