Night In The City
Topic: Stencils

I picked up a new stencil that has solid and patterned areas for a cityscape. Not as successful using it as I would have liked but I'm willing to show what I got.

I started with some waxed paper background and used distress ink to color a big moon Then I laid on the stencil with the open pattern exposed and used more of the yellow ink. So where is it? Um, I'll tell you later.

I used Starry Sky distress ink to carefully color the sky without coloring over the buildings. Then I got the bright idea to use black distress marker to color in the patterned stencil over the buildings. WAY to juicy and the ink leaked under the stencil leaving a big mess. Rescue? Use a rag to swipe the ink straight down, coloring the buildings black. Then I wnt back in with a black Copic marker and freehanded in some building details. I stamped the Hello in the moon with Staz-On black ink and mounted the trimed artwork to a bright yellow card base.

Interlude where I scrub the stencil clean of all the ink....

So, I started over with the moon, sky and yellow building blocks on two more waxed paper backgrounds. The first time I didn't get the stencil lined up very well for the details (which are now being inked with 'black soot' dicstress) but the last one worked better. It did get more smearing of the building details so I need to learn to be more patient for the drying before buffing. I mounted one to bright yellow and one to light yellow.


With the buildings and the pattern in the sky I think these have a very industrial look.
