Let’s talk stencils. They’re sort of the underdog of the typical crafty stash – or at least, they are in mine. I certainly don’t give them as much attention as other supplies like stamps, dies and hot foil plates, and if I’m honest, they don’t usually get me as excited. But just like all good underdogs, they tend to achieve surprising – and impressive – results.
The project I’m sharing on the Ellen Hutson blog today is one that reminded me how fun stenciling can be. I’ve combined ink blending and heat embossing to create a fun birthday card with plenty of dimension, shine and sparkle, and I’m sharing 9 tips that’ll help you achieve success with these techniques too.
You’ll find if all right over on the Ellen Hutson blog. See you over there!
