Stencil Monoprinting

Morning.

Today, I am officially a part of the TLC (Technique Lovers) Challenge Team at Splitcoast Stampers.
For my first challenge, I am challenging others to make a card using a Stencil Monoprinting technique.
It is super easy and lots of fun and just another great way to stretch the use of your stencils
for a different, more watercoloured look.




I began by inking the back of my Tim Holtz Wildflower stencil with Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress ink.
Next, I sprayed with a generous amount of water and pressed the ink onto my cardstock.  I covered it with a dry paper towel and pressed all over the stencil being sure the ink would transfer onto my 
paper.  I removed the paper towel and stencil to reveal the background.
While that dried, I die-cut the flowers, also from Tim Holtz and glued them over the monoprint.
The sentiment from Rubbernecker was stamped with black Memento ink in the other corner.
I sponged the edges with more DI when my card was done just to give it a more finished look.


Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES

  11. This looks wonderful, Karen. I know the secret is the amount of water so I need to find some play time to try it.
