I used distress inks with my Clarity Stamp stencil brushes through the stencil, onto light kraft card stock. The die is from Simon Says Stamp, along with the verse (die - Wishing SSSD111423; stamp - Sending & Wishing set SSS101475). A few dots with my white Signo pen finish this one.
This one I embossed, and it really came out pretty raised, although it doesn't show in this picture. I embossed it on light gray card stock, then used my brushes to swish some pumice stone distress ink onto it. Added Simon Says Stamp With Sympathy SSSD111360 die. I punched some dots from the same card stock and added them for a little interest.
Finally, I watercolored a panel using the smoosh technique and dried it with my heat tool and set it aside. Then I took the stencil and dabbed black soot distress ink directly onto the stencil, gave it a little mist of water, then turned it ink-side-down onto the watercolored panel. The ink beaded up a little on the stencil, because it is metal, but it came out pretty clear. I just filled in the missing spots with my black soot distress marker. I did leave the leaves part of the stencil sketchy, and I like the look of the leaves that way. Printworks PW Borders Q045 set has this Love You stamp, which fits perfectly in between the two trees.
So, I had fun in my craft room this afternoon. Three different looks from the same stencil. I wonder if Arlene is going to want her stencil back now!
Thanks for stopping by!
