1 Stencil, 3 Cards, No Ink Blending

Ardyth, Kathya, and Jenny are co-hosting a YouTube hop full of fantastic cards and prizes. A link to the next participant is in the comments of my video below.

Experiment with stencils, Paper Glaze, alcohol inks, and watercolors with me in this short card making video tutorial. Watch here or in HD on YouTube. While you’re there I’d love it if you like, subscribe, and ring the bell.

Stencil, Paper Glaze, & Alcohol Ink

All three of my projects use Altenew Bursting Dahlia Stencil. The dahlia image is huge and creates a perfect focal point.

Stencil, Paper Glaze, & Alcohol Inks

As per the Picket Fence Studios packaging, Paper Glaze can be used with alcohol inks. I had planned on painting this Paper Glaze dahlia, but I accidentally dropped a bottle of alcohol ink on the panel. So, I splashed on the color for an abstract look instead.

Paper Glaze & Alcohol Ink

Turns out this is my favorite card of the bunch! Just goes to show, mistakes aren’t errors but opportunities! Simon Says Stamp CZ Design Thanks Wafter Die finished off the card.

Stencil & Watercolor Brush Markers

While the Paper Glaze was drying, I started on this watercolor version using Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers.

I love the tie-dyed effect this created by blending Turquoise and Mountain Mist Watercolor Brush Markers. I taped my stencil to watercolor paper, but you use Pixie Spray if you want to retain cleaner lines between the petals.

Altenew Bold Greetings Die and Calming Aqua Nuvo Crystal Drops finished off the card.

Stencil & Alcohol Inks

Lastly, I splashed alcohol ink onto a stencil and Yupo paper to create two different panels. The second panel, used to make this card, is a print from the leftover ink on the stencil.
