The first of our November release at Uniko features a very versatile background stencil. Here's how I used it.
Trying to think outside the box, I decided to use my new WOW embossing pen I picked up from Lavinia Stamps shop in Ruthin, where the OH took his car for a recall from Subaru. He just happened to mention that there was a craft shop around the corner so I 'volunteered' to accompany him on his hour and a bit journey!!
I first drew around the stencil with a pencil on a panel of MM paper, then painted the opening with Zig watercolour markers. I tried using the WOW pen alone but was more successful following the soft pencil outlines!! After embossing with some white EP, I spritzed the panel with water and dabbed the excess inky water with some kitchen paper. I think I ended up with more on the kitchen paper than the MM panel!! I do like the mottled effect I got though, even if there was a little leakage.
The panel was die cut using a stitched rectangle die, mounted on a matching base card and the sentiment added. The sentiment was made up from words from the Doodle Flower set, stamped on a matching card circle, mounted on a die cut vellum one.
That's all from me for today but why not check out what the rest of the Brand Ambassadors have been up to? I'll be back tomorrow with another stencil introduction.
