Stenciling is a great crafting technique that can be used in endless ways. In this tutorial, I chose to use the stencil almost like a stamp by painting it with Tsukineko’s All-Purpose Ink. In my family, we have a camouflage fan and greenery is also Imagine’s color of the month. What better way to celebrate a special Camo Birthday party (and present a tutorial) than by capturing beautiful memories and scrapbooking them with green camo-like texture afterward. Shades of green and gold compliment the photos perfectly and make the special memories come to life.
Select green All Purpose inks, Gold Delicata inker, a pipette and a Brushstix for this layout.
Use a pipette and add drops of green All-Purpose Inks onto the stencil. Start with the lightest green moving to the darkest.
Mist the inks with water until they blend nicely into a liquid ink covering the stencil pattern.
Carefully turn over the stencil and stamp the image onto your background cardstock with the inked stencil.
Remove the stencil from the background and leave the ink to dry. You can lightly mist the ink with more water to make the colors blend into each other.
Place a small drop of Golden Glitz Delicata from the inker onto your craft mat.
Lift the Delicata ink with your Brushstix and then draw patterns or scribble onto your background using the gold ink. Leave the ink to dry or heat set using a heat gun. Complete your scrapbook layout using personal photos, green embellishments such as buttons or sequins, and patterned papers such as maps, geometric patterns etc.
