Stencils and Texture

Another class down for the AECP Level III. I took Nicole Watt’s Stencils Unleashed: Advanced Stencil Techniques. This class did not disappoint. She had a section on adding texture with paste through stencils. I chose to do a card based on that theme. This is really easy and adds a lot to the card.

I secured a stencil to a piece of white cardstock by using some Washi tape.

I then used some Altenew Pink Pearl ink and put some on my mat. Using some Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste, I mixed it together, to give a little tint. I really like using this for a light background texture.

Using a spatula I used the paste and coated the stencil. After removing the stencil, I let the paste dry and cut to the size I wanted. The pearlescent with just a hint of color really came through.

I used some gold cardstock with Altenew’s Adhesive backing and Flowing Foliage Die set. The adhesive helped because the dies were little and detailed. I added a few pearls and a sentiment. Adhered it to a light pink card base. For a more clean and simple card, there is a lot of texture. I am pretty pleased with it.

I hope you enjoy!
