Stenciling With Glossy Accents {Baby}

Monday, June 9, 2014

A few days ago I shared a new technique where I decided to use glossy accents and a stencil to create some bright birthday cards.  This time I have something a bit more subtle. 
 The technique is the same, but before the glossy accents dried I added some glitter.
Here are the directions again in case you missed them:
I taped my cardstock down to my work surface and then taped the stencil over top using blue painter's tape.  The more contact you have between the stencil and cardstock the better.  You don't want the glossy accents to spread underneath the stencil.  When it did it made a mess and ripped the paper when I removed the stencil. I found that applying some glossy accents to my palette knife directly and then spreading it over the stencil worked the best.  Also, spreading in one direction helps to prevent the glossy accents from squishing under the stencil.  Once I had good even coverage, I let it sit for just a few seconds to help it set up.  Then I slowly removed the tape and the stencil from the paper and set it aside to dry. 
I don't often CASE a card design exactly, but when thinking about how I wanted to use the piece I created, this card by Melinda came to mind.  I thought it would make a beautiful baby card for my friend, Kelli and showcase the stenciled piece.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful week!
