Hi everyone. I do like to try a new to me technique occasionally and I spotted this one the other day over on Barbara Gray's blog here. I thought it would work with one of my new stencils, so I found a piece of white card and cut it to the same size, and after taping the stencil to it I sponged some white acrylic paint through it using a piece of blending foam, and then I removed and washed the stencil in some soapy water immediately.
After the paint was thoroughly dry I used my Distress Inks to add colour. These were Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn. I then got a baby wipe and carefully rubbed over the white painted areas to remove the ink. The white paint acts as a resist, and although not perfect most of the ink did wipe off so I was pleased with the result.
Before adhering this to the card I added a piece of funky foam to the back so it would have some dimension. I then cut a sentiment from a piece of white card using a Sue Wilson Scripted Happy Birthday die and sponged it quite heavily with Pine Needles Distress Ink and using Versamark Ink I heat embossed it with WOW Clear Embossing Powder to give it a nice shine. I then finished by adhering it to the centre of the stencilled panel before adding it to a 7" square white base card.
Thank you for looking at my blog today.
