Splatter Spray Background Stencil
Last but not least, this was the last card made for this months blog hop. Does splattered dots were so much fun to make. I have a stencils called "Splattered Dots" that I used for the ink layering in this card.
Really simple, you take a piece of "Desert Sand" cardstock, place the stencil on top and secure both. I used a sponge dauber and white ink to place the first layer of ink down. The dauber is perfect for getting into the little dots of the stencil. Once the ink was dry I placed the stencil back and off set the design just a bit. Next I used Chocolate brown ink and repeated the procedure. Last I moved the stencil one more time by a little bit and added Cocoa brown ink (all Close to My Heart) to it.
For the card itself I used a cream colored card base and some cocoa cardstock, 1/4" smaller than the base. I cut my stenciled cardstock down and divided it into four strips. I placed the two outer ones right on the cardstock and raised the two middle ones with foam dots. A few paper flowers, a piece of brown glitter paper and a banner with my phrase adhered to the bottom of the card and this last example of this months "Ink Layering Technique" blog hop was done.
If you like to know more about this technique or if you like to try out one of my classes, please feel free to contact me for more information. Leave a comment about the hop and the cards you have seen so far. I would love to hear from you.
Keep coming back for more inspiration and many more projects to come each week...
