I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. It was extremely quiet here but still a very good day. I've spent a lot of time in my craft room working ahead in my DT assignments and just plain playing. Today I'm sharing three cards I created with what I'm calling offset stenciling.
This technique is similar to offset stamping but with the use of a stencil. It's definitely easier to show than to describe.
I started with a background stencil, a panel of kraft colored cardstock and white pigment ink, applying the ink to the panel and allowing it to dry. I cleaned off the stencil, placed it back over the panel at an offset to the original placement and then applied a layer of dye ink. I really love the look this gives.
In order to achieve the same color for my sentiment panel I swiped the white pigment ink onto a piece of the same kraft cardstock. Once it was dry I then ink blended the dye ink over top, creating a perfect color match to the background. I die cut the notebook card and heat embossed the sentiment in white. I added a bit of twine, popped it up on the stenciled panel with foam tape, adhered it all to a white card base and then finished it off with some clear droplets.
I created two other backgrounds using a darker dye ink but followed the same technique as above.
These are beautiful! Your offset stencilling looks amazing.ReplyDelete
Well done, Julie! All three are fabulous, but I'm especially partial to these done in navy!ReplyDelete
Love the depth this offset stencilling gives on the darker examples! Brilliant!ReplyDelete
