I love stencils and it’s no secret. I think they have endless possibilities and each time you change the product you use with a stencil you can change the way it looks. You can use stencils on their own, combined with other stencils, layered, only portions of a stencil and so much more.
Today I am showing you how I used one of my favourite stencils with my favourite inks and pastes to create a gorgeous sign board.
Add some Anna Griffin Embossing Paste onto a palette. Add a few drops of Delicata re-inker onto the paste. I used two colours but started off with Celestial Copper.
Mix the re-inker into the paste. Make sure you mix it well. The ink will colour the paste to a beautiful copper colour.
Use an old credit card or palette knife to spread the paste over the stencil. Remember to tape down your stencil with some washi tape to prevent it from moving.
In the same mixture of coloured paste, add a few drops of Delicata Dark Brown shimmer re-inker. Mix the colour well into the paste to colour it a darker shade. Spread the darker shade on the left hand side of your stencil to fill it in.
Carefully remove the stencil. Onto the wet paste sprinkle some pink glitter and leave to dry.
Once the paste is dry shake off the excess glitter then add some extra decorative elements to complete your signboard.
