Default TLC760 ~ Stencil Smooshing ~ 9/16/19

For today's challenge, I have a super fun background (I know you are surprised about that huh )


A similar technique was done a few years ago HERE to create a monoprint. However, while the idea is similar, this time we want to use a few stencils (3-4) together to create a background to build our card on... This is also very similar to the ink smooshing technique; however, instead of smooshing the ink onto acetate, you will smoosh it on a stencil. Spritz it 3-4 times then "smoosh" it onto your watercolor paper in a few places. Repeat with other colors and stencils for a cool background piece.


I used Distress oxides but regular Distress Inks or other water based inks would work too.


The inspiration from this card came from the link below:



I hope you are inspired to try this one, I can't wait to see your projects!


Lyn




Here are the Details for today's challenge:

DH took a nap before dinner, so I had time to make this - fun. I used a hairdryer to speed up the drying between each layer.

These are the stencils I used...

Thanks, Lyn for the link to the stencil smooshing. I liked it was short, quiet, and to the point. I will definitely use this again.

Default Hello

I made another today!!! Instead of doing what I am supposed to be getting done, I am playing in my craft room : ) But, I made this card with a special friend in mind- she lost her husband recently, and although we are long time friends, while we were both caregivers, we really bonded over taking walks in different wooded areas and birdwatching.

HERE is my card

I was intrigued with this cool technique the moment I read it ... but play time has become a bit of a fleeting opportunity lately. At long last, it's finished!

You're s-s-Special!
