The technique challenge this month on the Club Scrap Blog is - Stamping Through Stencils... a technique I love! It's so much fun to play with the various combinations of color, stencils and stamps. Today I have a couple to share with you....
For my first card I used a stencil for the background box which I inked with Angel Pink. I then used the double heart stencil which was inked with one of my inky red daubers - no real color used, just left over ink. I then stamped text from the Paris kit with grey ink. It still needed something after I stamped the sentiment so I stamped a few post marks also from the Paris kit to finish it off.
This example was made by inking the feather with a combination of Peanut Brittle along the edges and White Shimmer Delicata ink. Since the Delicata is a pigment ink I was able to pull the dye ink along and blended it out into the rest of the stenciled area. After the ink was dry I stamped a scroll stamp through the stencil. Wish you could see it in person...the shimmer from the Delicata ink really makes this card so lovely in person.
So, have you ever tried this technique?
If not, you really should - it's so easy but creates such stunning finished works.
