Thanks for all the lovely feedback on my recent projects ❤❤❤. Are you planning to take part in the first ever Artful Crafting Challenge? The theme is stencils. Check out the AC blog for information 🙂
Today I wanted to share my experiment with stencils using distress paint. I usually use stencils with paste, inks and sprays, however, this time around I wanted to try something different. So my choice was to use the Victorian velvet distress paint from my Artful Crafting DT kit (shown below). It is a super gorgeous colour.
I cut some watercolour paper for tags and chose three different 6 x 6 inch stencils (Prima Chevron, Simon says Stamp Moroccan and a Prima doily stencil).
I placed the tag on my Ranger craft mat and placed the stencil over it securely using some washi tape and then applied the paint in random areas as shown in the pictures.
Once the paint was dry I wet the paper using water and used some watered-down distress stains (squeezed lemonade, broken china and dusty concord) to give a soft water coloured look (pic 9). I dried the tags using my heat gun (pic 10). I still felt that something was missing here so I splattered the tags using dusty concord ( a really pretty purple) distress stain to add some interest to the background (pic 11)
