Ink up a stencil for a unique and colorful monoprint.
- Stencils (the Crafter’s Workshop TCW554 Butterfly Collage used here)
- Distress Inks or Paints, or other water-soluble medium
- Watercolor paper or cardstock
- Rag or paper towel
- Water mister
- Craft mat
- Other supplies as needed to complete the card (Stamps, sequins, adhesive and cardstock used here)
Place stencil upside down on craft mat.
Add two, three or four colors of Distress Inks directly to the stencil.
Mist the inked stencil liberally with water.
Turn stencil over onto watercolor cardstock.
Press down with rag or paper towel to allow watercolor paper to absorb inks/water and to remove excess water.
Remove stencil and gently blot.
Air dry or use a heat tool to dry.
Use the finished monoprint to complete a project.
