1. Begin by stippling Scattered Straw over the entire piece of cardstock.
2. For this example I am using a background stencil. The stencil it's self doesn't cover my entire card panel so I need to find the center of your cardstock and make a small mark with a pencil. (This mark will be erased later.) This is our anchor point for our stencil when we flip it.
3. Position the stencil using the mark we previously made and begin stippling color onto the cardstock/stencil. I started by adding Broken China at the bottom, worked my way into Shabby Shutters and ended up with Worn Lipstick in the inner most sections. You will want to blend a few of the holes for a smooth transition.
4. Remove the stencil & reposition. Repeat step 3
5. Your background paper will look something like this.... It's ready to be used!!
Now, just think of all the possibilities this opens up!
This technique adds life to all those long forgotten stencils buried in your stash!
Dig 'em all out ~ those yucky old plastic stencils, cheap cardboard stencils, alpha stencils...the list just goes on and on!!
Put them to some great use with some dye ink and your stencil brush!
Tomorrow we'll talk about masks & stencil brushes!
