Just because

Hi there!

I had so much fun today experimenting with stencils, ink and relief paste !

I first tried mixing acrylic paint with clear relief paste, it gives a really vibrant look, but tends to run beneath the stencil giving an untidy effect.

I then did the stencilling first with Colorbox ink and added the clear relief paste afterwards. This gives a much cleaner look... like this :


 


My card was inspired by the following challenges:

Less is more ~ Stencilling

Freshly made sketches ~ layout

Addicted to stamps ~ CAS


                                                

Thanks for visiting me today!

Gorgeous card! Love those shapes! Have to try this method, like paste, but use it alone or with embossing powder.

This is so pretty. The way the stenciling just tapers off at the edges is a very cool effect.

Wat een mooie kaart! Blijf het zelf heerlijk vinden met stencils te werken en deze met stempels te combineren. En ja, de paste er bovenop ziet er gaaf uit! Fijn weekend verder!

Jen Mitchell said...

This looks great! I never thought of inking first then topping with embossing paste. Another "duh" moment! Thanks for sharing the idea!!

This is so cool, Hannelie! Such a great idea to do the ink first...you can shade and fade as much as you want, and then get that brilliant shine. I love this technique. And in perfect colors too. Have a great week. Bev

Okay...this is just way too neato-mosquito! I would love to 'feel' the texture in real life! Love the split panel and LOVE the sentiment!
