Hi, friends, Chark here today to show you four different ways to use a stencil. If you’ve experimented with stenciling, you’re probably like me and found some techniques more to your liking than others. Here’s a peek at four tags I made with this Small Square Grid stencil.
In this tag, I used white embossing paste and then sprinkled on two colors of fine glitter while it was wet. Then I added a gold heart and gold paper at the bottom.
For the second tag, I used white embossing paste and some Picked Raspberry Distress in mixed in. I didn’t make the paste uniformly pink before applying it to the stencil. You can see there are some darker and lighter spots. I applied it to silver paper, and really love the peek of shiny behind the matte white paste.
For the third tag, I just used white embossing paste and watercolored behind it once it dried.
For the last tag, I applied the clear embossing paste and then sprinkled on tiny beads. I didn’t think they’d stay put, so I added some glossy accents to the beaded areas after it dried. That made the paste shiny and held the beads on. Note–cut this one to size before the beads–it’s almost impossible to get a good cut afterward.
Pssst! I have a little secret…this stencil is in on sale for the crazy low price of $3.50! It’s one of my faves because of the graphic look. It works on any style of project.
