Playing With Your Stencils In Another Way Than Blending

 Good Morning

This week I am showing you a different way of using your stencils. As I usually use my ink pads and blender brushes, I wanted to give things a shake up. If like me you have loads of sprays sitting around doing nothing they are fantastic for using with your stencils.


Duo Tone Stars Stencil (Waffle Flower) 

Essential Sentiments Stamps (Waffle Flower) 

White Embossing Powder (Any)

Distress Oxide Sprays (Ranger)


Picked Raspberry

Abandoned Coral

Fossilized Amber

Cracked Pistachio

Twisted Citron 

Peacock Feathers

Black Soot

Distress Stain Spay In Tarnished Brass (Ranger)

Gold Water Based Spray (Any)

Card Stock 80lb (Neenah)

Black Liquorice Card Stock (Lawn Fawn)

C6 Card Blanks

Sprinkle In Super Star and Star Bright (Little Things From Lucy's Cards)


Firstly using a splat box I spay Black Soot on to the stencil, a piece of  Neenah card stock was place under the stencil. 

Once sprayed Ileft it for a few minutes then place a piece of kitchen paper over the top to soak up excess ink spray.

Using tweezers I gently removed the stencil. Then I removed my cardstock to blast it with a heat gun, on a low heat. This speeds up the drying time.

I then lined up the stencil which has a duo effect so you can cover your first coloured stars. Then I used Cracked Pistachio, then again removed and dried. 
Lastly I popped it back in to the splat box (No Stencil) and sprayed over the top with Picked Raspberry.

I tried a few more colour combinations, and loved the different affects. Some where very suprising.

Finally I scrunched up some kitchen paper and dabbed on the Tarnished Brass Spray. (Spray on to a worksurface and dab it up)

Once these were fully dry I added them to my card blanks.

Next I stamped and Heat Embossed my sentiments. I used detailed white embossing powder.

I love how quick and simple these came together.
I'm not one for mess, but this technique keeps you in control of  where your sprays are going. Lastly I forgot to mention I added some sprinkle stars.
Happy Paper Crafting
