Make flawless artwork with this stencil technique created with brushes and White pigment ink!
Is it possible to have too many stencil techniques up your sleeve? I had such a hard time choosing which one to feature today!
My friend Beth asked if I would share some of my brush stencil techniques. So I chose stencils from my
massive stash. Then I headed to my makeup drawer. Yes, you heard me correctly! I selected a blush brush (never used for makeup application) and a large paint brush to repurpose in my crafting.
Stencil Technique with Brushes
Apply the ink to the panels through the stencils in a circular motion with even pressure.
I was able to achieve a very smooth and even application with this soft bristle brush. I was impressed with the coverage and with the absence of ink smears which often occur under the stencil.
For deeper color coverage, simply apply more layers of ink.
Gently dust the inked panels with Silver Pan Pastel or Pearl Powders with a dry paintbrush.
Buff any excess powder with a dry cloth to reveal a brilliant silver sheen.
Die cut (Sizzix Sizzlit) shapes from the stenciled panels.
These festive stenciled hearts can be added as the perfect embellishments on pages and cards!
