Stencil offset technique
Hello crafty friends! Today I have a card for you using some of the new products from February!
Here is a list of items I used to create this card...
- Bunny Hugs Stamp Set
- Blanket of Blooms Stencil
- Alabaster Pigment Ink
- Clear Embossing Ink
- Mini Ink Blending Dauber
- Stamp and Stick Mat
- Alcohol Markers
- White Gel Pen
- Peach cardstock
- Foam Tape
- Liquid Glue
- A2 Card Stock Panel
I start off with a A2 panel of a peach cardstock from my stash. I adding it to my stamp and stick mat and then added the Blanket of Blooms Stencil to it. I love the mat as it makes it so easy to get right to inking!
I grabbed a Mini Ink Blending Dauber and my Alabaster Pigment Ink and loaded it up with ink. I then very carefully added the ink to the stencil. Once I had a nice covering down, I very carefully lifted the stencil and then slightly off set it. I then grabbed my Clear Embossing Ink and repeated the process like I had with the white pigment ink. By doing this, it creates a slight shadow to thew flowers, giving them more dimension and added interest. You can also do this with stamps to create depth.
When I was done, I set the panel aside and stamped my images from the Bunny Hugs Stamp Set. I attempted to make my rabbit an English breed, but he quickly turned a little darker than I wanted. But I thought he was still unique and cute! Once I had the images colored, I fussy cut them out. When I laid the images on the panel, I didn't like the look of the stark white outer edge. I wanted them to blend a little more with the panel, so I grabbed a marker color that was very close to the card panel and then colored the white edge of the images. This is a great way to help blend the cut images!
I added the images using foam tape and or liquid glue and finished the card off with a printed sentiment.
I LOVE this stamp set and had made many cards using it!
