Hello everyone! Lydia here. Today I’ll be sharing a technique inspired by the lovely Amber, 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!
