Hi, it’s Maureen today sharing a simple technique using stencils. Our Technique Toolbox: Creative Stenciling & Mediums class has been so inspiring for me. I hardly ever used stencils before preparing for this class and now I can’t seem to put them away.
My card uses the Faded Background Stenciling technique that Kristie highlighted in her Spotlight on Trends article.
The Faded Background Stenciling technique is one of the most basic techniques that you can do with stencils. You simply lay a stencil over your card stock and apply ink using a blending tool or sponge. You will focus the majority of the ink in the center and gradually let it fade out. This is a great way to add a subtle background to your design or to ground your focal point.
All of the products I used on this card are from the Stamp of Approval Friendship and Young at Heart Collections. I love how these products work so well together!
