|I saw a very interesting technique called faux vellum technique from Inkylicious on a blog by Sue of Zouave cards. Sue used the "right" items for her card, as she bought the kit from UK. |
I decided to use what I had! So mine looks nothing like it really.
Will try it again though, with other stamps! it was fun. Now for the... How to!
|I cut a die cut a stencil with Nellie Snellen Straight Eastern Oval dies|
Think we under-use dies as stencils, they really are a cheap way to get a stencil! Then used white chalk pad and DI ink daubers to shade around the inside of the Kraft Card, next time thought would try the White Linen Dylusions Spray as have some of that. I think it would be quicker.
Two things to note when using sprays:
1. Keep your finger tip/ nail away from the end of the nozzle, easily done and ends up with blobs.
2. Spray from height, ie not close, as it gives a more even sweeping spray. I do it outside, but for water based ones I know one crafter uses her shower recess!
|Outline before removing the mask/ stencil the outside of the bauble. Note the stencil (left) is cut out of a cereal box scrap. :D|
|Sprayed the masked image before removing stencil with perfect pearls for shimmer. Also used:|
