Get ready for an amazing week of Awesome in Autumn! This week we are playing with the Quietfire Design team, and are so excited to play with their amazing images and sentiments. In their beautiful calligraphic style, their quotes and thoughts are the perfect addition to our Dreamweaver designs. Follow along with us, and leave your comments for an opportunity to win one of two wonderful prize packages:
|Nativity stencil (LL554) and Quietfire Blessed Season (5694)|
The nativity scene stencil (LL554) was used with the ink transfer technique. This involves spraying the actual stencil, and then setting it onto a clean paper towel face up. To do this I placed it onto a clean paper towel (this gives the excess spray somewhere to be absorbed.) Then I used Blue Lagoon colored Memories Mist (MM20) and sprayed two or three times onto the stencil and then used Stormy Water colored Memories Mist (MM13)...I used less of this darker color because it has a tendency to take over the coloring process because of the strength of the pigment color. Now pick up the sprayed stencil and lay it onto another clean paper towel with the sprayed side facing toward the ceiling. Now you will place glossy cardstock over the sprayed stencil, smoothing the back of the paper with your hand and pull it off of the stencil. The results are the smeared image you see behind the nativity that has an ethereal look. While this background area is drying I cleaned the stencil with a dry paper towel and repositioned it and aligned it onto the now dry background and paste-embossed it with Glossy White Embossing Paste (DGWP). Remove the stencil and sprinkle the wet paste with an ultrafine transparent glitter called Glacier (#211) from Art Glitter. Place it onto a warm place to dry...this will take at least 30 minutes.
Remember the month of September means 20% off at Stencil with Style...be sure to use code SWS20 when you check out.
