Happy Little Stampers CAS April Challenge - Stencil Monoprinting
Hi folks, well, that's another month gone! That means we have a brand new challenge for you all, over at Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge and this month it is for 'Stencil Monoprinting' . . . never heard of it? No? Well head on over there and watch the videos on the subject and see the other members of the design team's terrific examples.
As always, Kylie is sponsoring this challenge which means there are prizes to be won from the HLS shop!
For my card this month, I used a stencil, cut for me by my very kind friend Loll and a stamp & die set from WPlus9 called, 'Sunshine Layers'.
First, I lay the stencil down on my craft mat and used my Delicata Ink Pad to ink it up, then I very lightly sprayed with gold spritz. Next, I lay my focal layer on top of the stencil, face down and rubbed all over the back with my fingers to get an impression. The ‘texture dots’ you see are just the effect that water in the gold spritz has when sprayed on the Delicata Gold ink (it’s a metallic pigment ink) As that was drying I cut a layer of black card-stock just a bit bigger than my focal layer and the 'Sunshine' die cut out of the same black card-stock.
When the focal layer was dry I mounted it on to the black mat and mounted that on top of the base card. Finally, I stamped the other part of the sentiment on to a piece of white card-stock, another slightly larger piece of black card-stock and finally mounted it on to the focal piece with foam tape for dimension.
This is my card, unfortunately, as always, it was impossible to catch the glimmer & shimmer that is on the card in real life :(
I hope that gives you some inspiration and we can't wait to see what you all come up with. Have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by. Hazel xx
