Hello everyone! Lydia here. Today I’ll be sharing a technique inspired by the lovely Amber (Notable Ink), that allows you to use your stencils onto solid stamps. I’ll be using Simple Shapes XL Stamp Set and Deco Wonder Stencil.
To start, I took the Deco Wonder Stencil and sprayed it with some repositionable adhesive. I then placed the stencil on top of a solid image from Simple Shapes XL Stamp Set. I used the large triangle for the first card and the circle for the second. Once the stencil was in place I then inked through it to the stamp beneath. I used Ultramarine Ink for the triangle and a mix of Ultramarine and Olive Inks for the circle. I used finger daubers to add the inks as I found this gave the best impressions.
Once all the inking was done, I removed the stencil and stamped the image into place. I just love the look this gives and it really stretches your supplies as you can play around with both the stamps and stencils you use.
For the triangle card, I finished this off with a sentiment from Sentiment Strips Stamp Set. For the circle card, I finished off with a sentiment from Fancy Greetings Stamp Set and a few clear sequins.
To see how this technique was done please check out the video below or over on our YouTube Channel:
Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon!
