Jumbled Letters - a Double Stencil Tutorial
Topic: Stencils

Today, I again have two techniques, this time using very different approaches to the Jumbled Letters stencil from My Favorite Things.

 

The first technique starts with watercolor paper and uses Distress Inks.

I used the foam applicator tool to cover the surface with three colors of Distress Ink.

Then I laid the stencil over the top and used a damp rag to try to scrub away color.

CRAFT FAIL! The ink did not come up as much as I had hoped and the water leaked under the stencil giving mushy edges.

It may not be what I wanted but I trimmed it down and used it anyway. I love the card that resulted when I used black Dazzles on it. Nobody has to know that this was not the look I was going for!

And then there was the technique that worked as planned...

This technique uses Versamark, Pearl-Ex powder and clear detail embossing powder.

 

I used cream cardstock for this technique. First, I treated the cardstock with an anti-static bag.

Then I placed the stencil and mooshed Versamark Ink through the open spaces.


I used a soft paintbrush to dust on the Pearl-Ex powder (I used antique gold).

Gently dust away surplus Pearl-Ex and then add clear embossing powder. It will still stick to the Versamark!

Heat set the embossing powder.

Repeat after me: "ooooh, aaaaah".

Trim and turn into a card front. I decorated mine with cardstock stickers.

Want more? The last stencil tutorial is tomorrow - though I might have a bonus one next month!
