Happy Tuesday everyone!
Pam DeChellis here – bringing you the Honey Bee Scraps first Technique Tuesday where we feature not only the fantastic Honey Bee stamps but also a great technique tutorial as well.
My project today features a sentiment stamp from the “Oh Snap!” stamp set.
The background for the card as well as the die cut heart were made using a technique called stencil mono printing. I first learned this technique from Tim Holtz and I have been addicted to it ever since. This card was made using Distress ink and pearlized water (add a scoop of Perfect Pearls to water in a mini mister) but you can also use acrylic paints and spray mists as well.
Repeat the above steps to make a second background from which the heart will be de-cut.
After the background has been fully dried we can add the layering stencil elements.
To finish the card and make the focal image- stamp the sentiment onto the second background piece with Versafine black ink, cover with clear embossing powder and heat set. Die-cut the sentiment (heart shape). Ink the edges of the heart and main background piece with Barn Door distress ink. Use dimensional foam tape to “pop” the heart onto the center of the background and the full piece onto the card base. Add embellishments to finish off design.
Thanks so much for joining me today! Be sure to check back every Tuesday for a new technique by the design team featuring Honey Bee Scraps Stamps !
