Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing another stenciling with brushos card along with a short video tutorial.
My card above uses the same technique in the video below and has stamping, die-cuts, and stenciling with brushos so it is another example of a CAS Mix Up card that fits the CAS Mix Up June Challenge - Die-cuts.
I shared the card below on my blog a few weeks back, and had several requests asking for a video on how I did this technique. Thanks so much for all the feedback.
The video on Stenciling with Brushos is below, or you can watch it on YouTube by clicking HERE. It's very short (2:30) and I show lots of examples of cards I made using this background technique.
I hope you'll take a few minutes to watch the video and I'd appreciate a "thumbs up" if you find it helpful. :) Thank you!
As I show in my video, I found it easiest to have something underneath my card front so that I could pull off my stencil quickly. I used an acrylic block, but you can use whatever you have on hand. The trick to this technique is removing the stencil as soon as possible so the water and crystals don't have time to flow under the stencil. For crisp, clean images, being fast is best. :) It's also best to use a stencil that has both open spaces and solid spaces, and try to get the watercolour crystals in as many of the open spaces as possible.
I used mixed media paper (Strathmore 400 series) for both my cards above. Watercolour paper also works well for this technique.
I hope you enjoy the video. And thanks for dropping by for a visit!
