Soft Stenciling with Heather

Share This!

Hi there, it’s Heather.  My card today is a spin off from another card I made using the Freshly Picked release products.  You can check out that card and video on this post.

This is a One Layer Card, but of course you can cut the stamped piece down a bit and add layers behind it if you choose!

To get the softer stenciled look on this card I just used the ink that remained on the stencil from the previous card (linked above) and a blending tool to softly swipe ink onto my card.


The Perfect Vine Stencil is a bit delicate, so use a gentle hand with your Ink Blending Tool.

I hope you like my card today. Thank you for having me as a guest blogger, Catherine!
