Stenciling techniques part 1 butterfly and Friend cards





Today, I am starting a series of stenciling techniques. I sat down with a pile of stencils from various companies, some ink, an art liner and transparent and opaque texture paste. I ended up with 15 panels when the night was done. So, I am breaking it down to a few panels at a time and then finishing then into cards. The first 2 are in today’s video.

On the first card I used Ranger Transparent gloss texture paste over Gina K ink. The second card I used Crafter’s Companion water based metallic wax (very similar to Lunar paste) over a stenciled panel .
