I placed the stencil on top of the pre-cut paper and painted the different colors of ink through the stencil randomly. When I had a lot of color on the paper I lifted the stencil off and set it aside. These are not permanent inks so the stencil can be washed off at any time.
Next I sprayed water onto the inked paper and let it run together. When I was satisfied with the look I blotted off the excess water with a paper towel.
I sprayed it with water again and blotted the paper with a towel again to get a lighter look.
At this point you can stamp lines or any other pattern on top of the Art Card. I decided to layer on a stamped image. This stamp is an old one by Lockhart Stamp Co. with Mr. Kitty on it.
I stamped the image with StazOn Jet Black ink on a separate piece of card stock, trimmed it out and colored it in with Dylusions and Memento ink pens. When this was dry, I matted it on card board paper, then glued the entire panel to the back ground colored Art Card.
I didn't want Mr. Kitty to be lonely so I made another one called Puppy Face to keep him company.
These can be kept in an Art Card book, glued to a small canvas, glued to the front of a card....pretty much anything you can think of to display them. They're sweet and guaranteed to put a smile on your face! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'll be back next Tuesday with more stenciling ideas. Hugs~Renee
