This is my first ever tutorial I've done!! It's posted this morning at Frosted Designs! It took me a long time to decide what to do a tutorial on...so I picked my favorite thing...ink, mist and stain!!!! So here it is....
Good Morning fellow scrappers! Today I want to share a tutorial on masks and stencils. I had bought quite of few of these and it took me quite awhile to figure out what to do with them. After playing around I found I could mist them, ink them, or use a distress stain dauber! This is just too much fun! I'm going to show you all of the stencils on white cardstock just so you can see it a little more clearly. So here we go.....
To start you just lay your stencil on the paper and spray away! I usually have spray everywhere but you also can protect the areas you don't want sprayed with scrap paper.
And here is what it looks like after you finish. It's great to use them for backgrounds on plain cardstock too!
For this chicken wire stencil I used Distress Stain. You just daub away and you don't need to use much!
Here is what the finished product looks like! Try it on patterned paper or use paper towel to take some of the stain off to give it a muted look.
Now this mask I have had for a long time and was scared to use it. But out comes the spray mist and it's just so easy to create a border on your paper.
Voila! Great for cards, borders or backgrounds!
My all time favorite thing to do with mists, inks or stains is to color flowers!! I buy the big packs of white flowers and just change up the colors to match any paper I'm using! You can even use the flower as a mask on your background. So have fun playing with the mists, inks, and stains that you have on your desk!! And my last tip of the day....Baby Wipes are the perfect tool for cleaning up your desk and your stencils!! Enjoy your day and have fun scrapping!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments and I appreciate your scrappy support! Have a wonderfully happy scrappy day! Lynn
