Ink Techniques: Stencil

Faux Mat Stencil with Images
The Faux Mat on this card was made using a stencil. I sponged the outer edges and used a Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel for the images. Stamped images would work, too!

The edges of the Decorative Label were inked with Sponge Daubers and the cut out "F" was raised with Dimensionals.

I sprayed the paper daisy with water and added a drop of ink, then dried it with a Heat Tool.

Stencil Placement

I used the Big Shot and the Top Note die to cut out the stencil shape. Use paper if you want a sharply defined edge. The thickness of card stock will make a less defined edge.

Use removable adhesive and place the positive image where you want the stencil to be on the card front.

With removable adhesive, adhere the negative image to the card front with the positive image inside the negative image; like putting two puzzle pieces together. Remove the positive image.

Now sponge colour on the inside edges and stamp images. Remove the stencil.

Faux Mat Stencil and Layers
The Oval Faux Mat on this card was cut with the Big Shot and the Ovals die. Follow the instructions above for perfect stencil placement. After applying ink with a Sponge Dauber, I layered a background stamp and the leaf spray image on the mat.

The edges of the sentiment label were inked with a sponge dauber and adhered with Dimensionals.

I used Satin ribbon, twisted and adhered to 3/4 in. circle of Sticky Page to make the ribbon rose.
