Stencilled Congrats

Yes, I’ve been MIA the last while…but I’m back!  Sometimes life stuff gets in the way of stamping…

Wanted to play along with a few challenges today and managed to combine three with this design. Don’t you love when that happens?

I’m really hooked on this reverse stencil technique.   I simply inked up my stencil, misted it with water and then placed it on some watercolor paper.  Then just stamped the floral image, which really mimics the stencil pattern.  A simple stamped sentiment and done!  Easy peasy…quick as a wink!

Here’s what I used:
Paper:  Ranger watercolor paper and Bazzill Marshmallow
Ink:  Ranger Jet Black Archival and Distress Inks:  Shabby Shutters/Peacock Feathers
Stamps:  Stampendous (floral) and Altenew Label Love
All the other stuff:  Stencil Girl stencil, craft mat, water mister and foam adhesive

  1. Oh wow, Lee-Anne! This is beautiful! I've never seen the reverse stencil technique before (that I'm aware of). It's really cool! I'm going to have to try this. 🙂


  2. Really beautiful design Lee-Anne. Wonderful technique and pretty colours too. I need to give this a try … have only done it once when I was taking the On-line Watercolouring class. Just bought a couple of stencils that will be perfect to give it a try 🙂


  3. Oh, WOW!! I have never done that reverse stencil technique, but I absolutely LOVE it. It looks like watercolor, which I'm addicted to anyway. Your card is FABULOUS!!! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Just Us Girls!
