How to colour mix patterned stencils


Happy New Year to all my readers, followers and friends.  This will be my last post until January 2nd, when the Technique Junkies has their blog hop, which I’m so excited about.

My card I created uses a stencil in the background and I thought I would show you how I created my colourful background.


Tape your stencil in place  If it is an oversized stencil like mine is here (stencil by Joggles) you will have to hold your cardstock in place to prevent shifting of the cardstock.


Using two colours of ink, you can sponge inside the holes without it coming out muddy.


Your piece is now ready to be used as desired.  I used my Misti to stamp my Chocolate Baroque image on top of my stencilled piece.

Happy New Year!

Hi Beth!

I’m having trouble figuring this out. The first two pictures look like you used embossing paste through the stencil first? But the last picture, and the fact that you stamped over it … looks flat. What’s going on here? haha! Really pretty card.
