Use your pigment inks and Texture pate to make your stencilled images really come to life with this easy to do technique.
The Wholesaler is a proud sponsor of Kunsvlyt and we hope you will be inspired by Season 2. We will be giving away weekly prizes of products featured on the show, so keep watching Kunsvlyt and keep coming back here…
step1 – Tack your stencil down with some washi tape to keep it in place on your cardstock. Start by inking the leaves using the Aloe Vera pigment ink.
step 2 -Lightly ink the flowers through the stencil by tapping the ink pad through the stencil in selected areas only.
step 3 – Use your Fantastix tool to carefully blend the ink colours together to create depth. Add your last colour of ink, Versamagic Purple Hydrangea to the flowers and blend again.
step 4 – Use a palette knife and add a thin layer of Matt Finish Texture Paste through the stencil while it is still in place. Carefully remove the stencil and leave the texture paste to dry. The paste makes the ink colour underneath seem brighter and adds so much life and dimension to the otherwise flat stencilled images.
TIP: To add texture I used a sponge dauber and tapped the Texture Paste down to give texture to the paste.
I love the effect of the blended inks and the finishing off the paste offers. A beautiful sealed in effect making the ink look really rich and beautiful.
