Create the illusion of a single continuous image with the Stacked Stencil Background. I found this tutorial on Pinterest and shared it with Lisa. We couldn't wait to share our unique results with everyone. Club Scrap has created so many wonderful stencils over the years but the Peony Floral Masking Stencil might be my new favorite. It has exquisite detail perfect for making this delicate layered background.

Stacked Stencil Background Tutorial

Cover a white panel with a stencil and apply a variety of inks (Distress Aged Mahogany, Antique Linen, and Worn Lipstick) with Ink Applicator Brushes.

Set the inked stencil aside and mist the panel lightly with water. 

Remove any excess water droplets with a paper towel to reveal the mottled texture.

Place the stencil onto a clean panel, ink side up. 

Carefully rub the excess inks with a baby wipe to transfer the color to the panel.

The resulting image will be lighter in color than the original stenciled panel. 

Trim and layer the panels with the artwork aligned to give the appearance of one continuous image.

Apply darker shades of ink (Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry and Candied Apple) to the top panel and a light shade (Spun Sugar) to the bottom panel. Raise the top panel with foam adhesive circles, adding even more dimension to the card.
