My background has been made using a stencil monoprint technique. If you are interested in learning this technique you’ll find my step out and video tutorials here. I’ve inked a stencil with three different shades of Distress Inks, misted it with water and pressed it onto my watercolor cardstock. Then I used another shade of Distress Ink with a different stencil over top of it. Next, I flicked some water onto the cardstock to add a little more dimension.
Check out the beautiful inspiration from the rest of the Design Team right here.
Here’s what I used:
Paper; Strathmore 140# watercolor
Ink: Distress and Archival inks
Stamps: Recollections and Verve Glad Tidings
All the other stuff: TCW stencil, Stencil Girl stencil, sponge, water
