Stenciled Background

Stenciled Background

One of the great techniques from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s True Scrap Class Dirty Fingers Clean Design, (affiliate link) is this fun one using a stencil and paint to create a one of a kind background.

Don’t you just love how only three colors of paint and a foam sponge make this stenciled background rock? A few incidental stamps and a fussy cut focal image, and this card is DONE!

If you want even more ideas for things you can do with stencils, you should also check out Lain Ehmann’s class on stencils. (affiliate link)

Today’s quick tip: Don’t let a lack of specific word stamps or letter stickers keep you from creating a one of a kind sentiment. Use a label maker or individual alpha stamps or rub ons to create your own sentiment. You could even create a sentiment on your computer, and print and trim it to add to your card.¬†Experiment!

Don’t forget, if you want to get a card in the mail, make sure you’re on my email list!
