Stencil Transfer Stamping


Today, I'm playing with the new Atoms stencil from A Colorful Life Designs and trying out a new technique as I host the TLC over at Splitcoast Stampers I'm calling 
Making Your Stencils into Stamps
Basically, you use your stencil as a to try out.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I looked through my stamps and picked out a larger solid background stamp.  It's important that it's a solid stamp as you will be transferring the stencil design onto the stamp.
  • I then laid the Atoms stencil onto my non-stick craft mat and inked up my solid background stamp with some Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide along the top and some Peacock Feathers DOX on the bottom.  Here is what the stamp looks like:

  • Next, I pressed the stamp onto the stencil with firm pressure to transfer the pattern onto the stamp and pressed the stamp onto my card front panel.
  • I let that dry and then I stamped the fern along one side.
  • I stamped the sentiment with some Versamark ink in my Misti and white clear embossed it.
  • I mounted the finished panel onto a piece of navy cardstock, then onto a white A2 sized card base.

Here is the stencil I used:

The added stencil pattern on the stamp has worked brilliantly Karen, and I love the two blue tones, and the black fern looks beautiful over the top, and finished with a lovely sentiment. x
