Stamping with a Stencil!

Hey everyone! Suzanne here to share a layout that I’ve created using a favorite technique of mine-stamping with a stencil (reverse stenciling)! I love to use this technique because the results are organic and hardly ever the same, and because it’s a really easy way to get color on the background of a layout. You can’t go wrong with this technique no matter your level of experience!

Beginning with Colorations Sprays in Waimea Bay and Siesta Key and the Dot Matrix Stencil, I randomly spritz one side of the stencil with both colors; I placed a paper towel under the stencil when I did this, but you can also place a separate piece of cardstock underneath and use it for another project. Next, I simply raised the stencil and placed it on top of my cardstock-pressing gently to allow the design to stamp onto the background. I repeat this step a couple of times until I’m pleased with the design.

I allowed the background to dry, and after a few splatters, all that’s left to do is assemble the layout! The impression from the stencil left a very cool textured watercolor effect! Here are a few close-ups!
