This month over at Altered Pages
we are working with stencils from
KEY to LIFE!
Stencil 1 has several sizes of stencils...
I love keys and couldn't pass up working with the
Key Repeat Wallpaper Stencil.
The large Repeat Wallpaper Stencils are the perfect size to create your own pattern papers!
Using an ivory sheet of paper, I placed the stencil over it and applied VersaMark directly from the ink pad.
Randomly place the stencil and ink with the VersaMark to add additional keys to the background.
Color the paper with Pan Pastels. The VersaMark picks up the colors vibrantly, the tooth of the paper also picks up the colors of the pan pastels. Apply a fixative, I use aerosol hairspray!
Second, on Craft Cardstock use Gesso with a pallet knife an apply over the stencil. Set aside to dry, when dry it is ready to use.
Be sure to wash the stencil immediately...
don't let the Gesso dry on it.
KEY to LIFE!
Finally, a card! Using the stencil with VersaMark, cover with clear embossing powder and heat. Layer papers and ribbon, apply with double sided tape, fussy cut Altered Pages Victorian Circus collage image. Cover the image with VersaMark and heat emboss with embossing powder, it appears to be enameled. Stamp sentiment with black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Embellish with Dew Drops!
Love the large STENCIL 1 stencils!
