Default TLC768 ~ Still Stencil Technique ~ {11/11/19}

Hello Technique Lovers!

Today we are going to use a technique that I learned from Lydia - aka UnderstandBlue - at her October retreat. She calls it Still Stencil Technique.


Basically, it involves sprinkling watercolor powders on water "safe" paper (I used Bristol), spritzing (a bit more than usual), and then laying a stencil in the wet ink and leaving it there until dry. When you lift off, you have a beautiful stenciled image for your background that can then be turned into a card!

I have two samples I made (one that turned into my card) in the thumbnail below.


In Lydia's video, this technique happens at about 1:30. The first technique she does with cling wrap is also fun! Save that for another time!





My sample: Happy Birthday

If you don't have watercolor powders, I am sure there are other things you might have to achieve similar results!

Have fun!

And a HUGE thank you to all our Veterans!! XOXO

Oh, fun. I might not get a card made till tomorrow but at least I can start this part before work today.

Those without powders might find some helpful suggestions in the tutorial for watercolour imprints, which is here: Watercolor Imprints Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

This technique also looks great using ink sprays and spritzing with water (Dylusion ink spray, Distress ink spray, etc) also Ecoline markers and water.

Fun technique, Judy, TFS Since I was stingy with my dry pigments, my results are much softer.

Thank you for the tip. I don't have the watercolor powders, but I do have Dylusion sprays that don't get enough love.

This was fun. And I can't wait to use a lighter finger tapping technique.

Here's there's a universe out my window

I wasn't sure about my background, I did it in a rush before work and maybe didn't make great choices. But I LOVE the card I ended up with. Hopefully I'll be back from the dentist tomorrow before it's too dark to take a photo. It probably just looks like what the salted background looks like for some people, I used a falling snow stencil. I made another one after work, but like it even less than I liked my blue one. Some of it, the stencil wasn't lying flat enough and there's just a pale splotch of bleah colour. I made be able to add some ornaments or something to cover it up.

Finger-tapping? I missed that, but I didn't have time to watch the video, I just ran with Judy's written instructions.

I left 2 pieces drying earlier today and on both the stencil lifted and the result is not great. Both will work as backgrounds for something but are failures for the technique. I tried again and I now have a piece where you can see the stencil work. Tomorrow it should be a card!

Janine, even before I made time to watch Lydia's video, I was remembering some other technique where I sprayed the back of my watercolour card first with water before putting it on my surface and working on the front. And I was wondering would that have made a difference - did you try that? I just can't remember what other technique I did it for. I know it wasn't for the watercolour imprints, but I think I only tried that with dies and stamps, not with stencils.

I still hope to get back to my more colourful piece when I can work out what to cover up the blank patches with (certainly don't aim to bin a piece of watercolour paper!!), but in the meantime here's this...

Hi Judy. As soon as I read this challenge Sunday night, I hopped out of bed to make a couple backgrounds on Bristol board. I used one here on Polly's Falliday challenge. Love this technique and this card. My thanks to you, Lydia and Polly for my heartfelt creation. FF19peeps321 TLC768 Wishbone...

Yes I did spray the back. The paper was OK - the stencil was a detailed one and had lifted. My attempt that worked was a "more meaty" stencil.

My card for Jackson

My failure used as a background
