Fun With Stencils (Masks)!

There are so many fun ways to work with stencils. Here are just a few, from simple to shimmery.

See the Serenity LIVE video here.

Blending Brush and Ink Pad

Use a Blending Brush for best effect, but you can also use a dauber or sponge. Gives a nice textured background.

Craft White Ink Pad, Embossing Powder and Heat Gun

Spritzer, rubbing alcohol, and reinker

Spritzer, 70% Rubbing Alcohol, Reinker

This technique is super fun, super colorful, and can be super messy if you are not careful. I spritz mine about 6 inches away, making sure the nozzle if facing downward, and the card stock is in a box with walls.

Frost White Shimmer Paint
