Stencils are all the rage right now, there are so many things you can do with them! You can use them as masks to create fabulous custom backgrounds, you can spritz, sponge, stipple, use a blending tool to ‘smoosh’ the colors, use several layers of stencils to create a collage design effect. You could also use embossing paste to create texture, there are lots of fun techniques to try. You are never quite sure of how it will look until you remove the stencil and then your design is revealed! You can also use them to emboss a delicate design onto paper or card stock.
This week the Wednesday Challenge are asking everyone to ‘Stencil It’. You can use store bought stencils, or you can make your own masks using die cut, or hand cut shapes.
Once you have made your creation just go ahead and upload it into the linky on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog! We can’t wait to see what you make!
