It’s no secret I have an obsession with stencils. They are so versatile and, compared to other items in my craft room, very inexpensive! Today, I’m using my stencils to do one of my favorite things on cards, make a scene. But with the help of stencils it’s quick & easy! Check out the video tutorial below for all the info!
Some supplies used in the video tutorial above were sent to me free of charge for design purposes. I only ever design for companies I can stand behind 100%. To see who I currently or have previously designed for head HERE.
A few tips to make scene making easy. First, ink blending is the quickest, but you can also use paints and modeling pastes as well. I used all inks today, but layering them is super easy!
To start both panels I ink blended with a brush and a very light hand on white cardstock. Then, after overlaying the stencil, I used a heavier hand to apply ink through the stencil. Using this technique allows you to use less inks, but still have a variety of colors. And as long as you give the layers a bit of time to dry, the inks won’t mix!
Finally, use a variety of ink blending tools to make the scene making even easier. I like to use a mixture of small and large blending brushes, small and large sponge daubers, and fantastic ink blenders, too!
Scene making can sometimes be tedious with stamping and masking and coloring, but with stencils, it’s so easy! If you are interested in any of the products I used today, you can find them all listed and linked down below! Until next time, happy crafting!!
