Technique Tuesday-Reverse Stencil

Take a look at this card. What do you see? Yup, that's right, you see stenciling. However this isn't your ordinary stenciling. It's called reverse stenciling. Huh?

Yup, that's right. Here's how it's done.

  1. 1. Using sponges or sponge daubers to cover a piece of white paper with several different colors of ink. I used Bumblebee, Pretty Peacock and Cherry Cobbler.

  2. 2. When inking the paper make sure to blend colors to overlap them.

  3. Tape a stencil on top of your inked-up paper. Use a dark color of ink to stencil. I used black, but you could use navy, or any dark color.

  4. Remove the stencil to reveal your card.

  5. Add image, ribbon or sentiment. I added images from a new stamp set for Christmas called, Warm Hugs. This comes with a die set called, Warm Wraps Dies. Order them together and receive a 10% discount.

  6. I add Bumblebee ribbon and added a card base of Bumblebee. It's that simple!

Give it a try. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Here's the Warm Hugs Bundle. It has dies that will make wraps for new coffee cups!

You may start to order from the Fall Catalog August 4th.
