Fall Card with Stencil and Aqua Pigments
Hello Friends! Thanks for stopping by to check out my project today. I love working with stencils, and Brutus Monroe has so many wonderful mediums that pair perfectly with stencils. Today, I am using the Wood stencil with some Aqua Pigments to make a fun background.
The products you will need for this project are:
Stamp sets I used:
First, I sprayed some water on my work surface and added a couple dropperfuls of the brown aqua pigment.
Then, I smooshed the watercolor paper all over the brown aqua pigment to completely cover the surface of the paper. This is an A2 size panel.
Right after I flipped the panel over, I put my stencil on top and pressed it into the paper.
Once the stencil Is onto our panel and all the parts of the stencil stuck down, I laid a piece of paper towel over the panel and pressed that down. This will absorb a lot of the liquid and aqua pigment that is exposed through the stencil making that part lighter than the rest of the background.
How cool is that?! The possibilities are endless with this technique! I used my heat tool to dry this piece, and then die cut with a stitched rectangle die and inked the edges with some brown ink. To finish off the background, I added some splatters using the same Brown Aqua Pigment.
I loved this background so much that I didn't want to cover much of it up. This kind of background lends itself to a simple card with just a small focal image and sentiment. I added a leaf from the Fall Florals stamp set, and the "Thank You" is from the Strawberry Social stamp set.
I hope you enjoyed this technique today - happy crafting!
