Inky Stencil Stipple Mist Tutorial

Create two panels by placing watercolor paper into a spray tray (aka: empty pizza box) and spritzing with water. Add two to three colors of Stipple Mists. Allow panels to dry completely before moving on to the next step. Tip: If you are impatient like me, a heat tool can speed up this process.

Cover one panel with the Damask Filigree stencil.

Apply White Pigment Ink. Be sure to use enough pressure to transfer ink through stencil onto paper.

Continue inking the stencil until the panel is filled with the repeating pattern.

The pressing of the ink pad onto the panel creates a subtle dappled effect that mimics the stipple-misted background.

Lay the second panel onto your work surface. Invert the stencil and apply it ink side down onto the panel.

Apply pressure to the stencil using a brayer or your fingers to transfer the wet ink onto the panel. Tip - Be careful not to move the stencil causing the ink to smear.

I just love the positive and negative images achieved with this fun technique!

Pair the panels with coordinating papers, stamps, and embellishments to create beautiful cards. (I used elements from the Damask collection. )

It is fun to experiment with other stencils in your stash. I created a thank you card with the Trattoria Grazie Stencil, cutaparts, and papers using this technique. Visit my Cape Cod Scrapper Blog for even more inspiration!
