Stenciling Revisited Tutorial!

Please check out my new Stenciling Revisited Tutorial(recently moved to this blog)!

Stenciling Revisited

In the past, I had a bin full of stencils gathering dust. I used to look at them mostly as a tool to use as templates or with pencils, markers, and dry embossing stylus tools. But there are so many more ways to use them and create stunning results . . . If you have stencils that coordinate with your prints or your stamps, then there are so many more ways to tie them into your finished pieces! Why not use the inks that you are already using with your stamps on the same project, but incorporate your stencils into the work, or the same embossing powders, etc?

To use your ink pads, pair them up with some wonderful tools. There's the ColorBox Stylus, Ranger's Cut 'n' Dry Foam, cosmetic sponges, Ranger's Cut 'n' Dry Nibs, Provocraft's Chizzel-It, Niji's Waterbrush, regular paintbrushes, and more! Alternately you can use liquid or dimensional paints, dry embossing tools, Ranger's Perfect Medium Marker or VersaMark's Marker and embossing powders, pigment powders, or chalks, etc.
