This year I discovered Tim Holtz Layering stencils and I have managed to acumlate a small selection. These stencils are so versatile. There is a growing collection available with lots of designs for a variety of occasions and oodles of techniques and mediums to use alongside.
Here are a few projects using these delicious stencils in a variety of different ways.
This card has seen my fingers pink for a number of days now. A messy technique but lots of fun. I applied various shades of Distress inks to the Lace layering stencil, spritzed with water and brayered onto some watercolour paper. To keep the theme, on the background I dabbed my versamark pad through the same stencil and heat embossed with embossing powder. I used the Finnabair Dont forget to fly stamp over my inky background.
