Teri's Stencil Sensation

 Teri Wilson - Teris Mailbox

Hello Crafty Friends. I have more Ink Brayered Backgrounds for you! It is Teri with TerisMailbox posting for The Funkie Junkie. You may recall other posts where I created full page using Distress Oxide inks and a brayer. I am having too much fun using those backgrounds creatively. Today I am sharing three cards all using texture pastes with stencils.

Tim Holtz has a wonderful LONG video on his channel talking all about texture paste. I learned so much watching the video before I started playing. I do have a video HERE if you prefer to watch techniques.

Here are some of the original backgrounds created earlier.

Here is the first card I created. Start with a rainbow-colored base. Use THS 179 and a selection of distress inks to add even more color to the base. Distress Inks used include Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron, Wilted Violet and Mustard Seed. 

Using a Palette knife, add Texture Paste Crackle over the stencil and set aside to dry.

Black Heat Emboss one of the flowers from CMS479 Abstract Florals and fussy cut. I embossed two of the larger floral blooms at once.

Use Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry Distress Watercolor Pencils to color the larger bloom. Use a watercolor brush to blend the colors.

Trim the base panel to 4.0 x 5.25 inches. Attach to a black cardstock panel 4.25 x 5.25 inches and an A2 card base. I did die cut a Scribbly Butterfly from the center of the back panel prior to attaching.

Stamp one of the sentiments on the lower left section of the panel. If the words are not completely stamped due to the paste, grab a black Micron pen and fill in the blanks!

Use foam tape to pop the bloom up and attach to the left side of the panel. Add a drop of glue to the center of the butterfly and attach on the right.

Next up is this very dramatic pink and black card.

The background is brayered with Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar and Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Inks.  I found that Oxide Ink was preferred. Ledger Script Stamp and Hickory Smoke Archival Inks add texture and interest to the background.

Use THS 181 and Black Opaque Texture Paste. Spread the paste in a curved area on the right and a vertical row on the left. Set aside to dry.

Check out the drama from the black paste on the bright card panel! Emboss and fussy cut the smaller of the blooms on white cardstock.

Once dry, trim the colored panel to 4 x 5.25 inches and mount on a piece of black cardstock 4.25 x 5.5 inches and add to an A2 card base.

Select a sentiment from the Abstract Floral Stamp set and stamp and emboss on the lower right. Glue to floral Bloom on the left side!

Last up is this fun manly birthday card! The base is brayered with Cracker Pistachio and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. Use THS178 Labels to apply Texture Paste Transparent on a few areas of the panel. Sprinkle Cracked Pistachio and Salved Patina Embossing powder over the color coordinated areas. Set aside to dry. Heat set when dry.

Trim to 4.0 x 5.25 and attach to a black panel 4.25 x 5.5. Add to an A2 card base.

Use Hickory Smoke Archival Ink to stamp the typewriter, letter with sentiment and the pointing finger from the Curiosity Shop Stamp set. I stamp twice so I can layer the cut outs. Fussy cut all and glue two layers together. Use foam tape to pop up the typewriter and the pointing finger.

Love the bright and cheery results.
