I want to share a fun technique with you using heat embossing and stencils. I think I first saw this on the Simon Says Stamp blog, I believe for an art journaling page. Maybe you saw it too.
Stencils are all the rage right now - especially with art journaling, but I love that all the cool ideas and techniques we're learning for art journaling can also be used on our cards!
So, here's how it works. Lay the stencil down on your panel, and using a VersaMark ink pad, pounce the pad over the stencil, then lift it up and add white embossing powder, then heat set. To add color, smoosh some Distress Inks onto your craft sheet, spritz with water then swipe your embossed panel through the ink. Love the effect!
So it's the same technique you use with stamping and embossing but with a stencil instead of a stamp - so fun!
Oh, by the way, that beautiful stencil is from Hero Arts and it's called, Large Lotus Pattern. I only used a portion of it because I had a scrap of white paper lying on my desk. (That's why my card is an odd size.)
I'm entering this into the Hero Arts, Stamp Your Story Inspiration Challenge.
We've had some amazing weather this week and it's suppose to continue over the weekend - YAY! Hope you enjoy yours! I'm so glad you stopped by - thank you! :)
