Stencils have quickly become a favorite tool of mine in my craft room. They are inexpensive, there are never ending patterns, and there are soo many different techniques and products you can use them with! Today I have another fun technique to share with you, using stencils and stamping with them! And I used several different mediums, all with their own unique finishing look! Be sure to watch the video tutorial down below for all the details!
For the first set of cards I started by inking up my stencils with pigment ink. Because pigment ink stays wet for a longer period of time you have that time to ink up the stencil and then transfer the image onto card stock. I like to use an ink brayer to apply even pressure all over the stencil for the best transfer!
Although I love using pigment ink for this technique, you can also use dye inks. I used three different colors of ink which I blended onto the stencil and then spritzed them VERY lightly with water. I transferred this image onto white heavy weight card stock so the ink would quickly soak into the paper for a crisper stamped image.
My final medium is probably the most fun and has the most unpredictable results! I used Fireworks! sprays and misted them onto the stencil – Any sprays will do. Then, very carefully, I sat the stencil on top of a piece of watercolor paper and just let it sit. I find it best to just leave this along and allow the image to transfer on it’s own without applying any pressure. Once you give it a few minutes, you can lift the stencil away to reveal your transferred image!
I hope you all enjoyed a look at this fun technique! I had a lot of fun creating all of these cards and playing around with all the different mediums and inks that work with it too!
