Stencil effect on cards using stamps!!

Hello Friends,

I am back with  a video where i share an old technique to create backgrounds on cards. I changed it up a bit to create an ombre look on the cards, Hope you will enjoy, List of all supplies is at the end of this post along with links for where you can buy the supplies.

To start i used a floral stamp set from itsy bitsy and randomly stamped it on a piece of cardstock that measures 4.25"x5.5". I did this in stages as i stamped portions in versamark ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder then moved to the next area to repeat the process.

I used the same technique for all the cards. Used different stamps for the same.
Next i used distress inks and mini blending tools to put some ink on the paper creating an ombre effect.

Once the ink was dry i took the cardstock and sandwiched it between a sheet of printer paper and ironed the cardstock to reheat the embossing powder and blot it on the paper. This gives a very matt effect on the cardstock just like it would be when using stencils.

On this one i used distress crayons instead of distress inks and used a baby wipe to blend the colours as the crayons need a little moisture to be able to blend smoothly i layered the distress crayons till i was happy with the colours and then repeated the same process as with other pieces.

On this i used Colorbox chalk inks.

For this one i used Altenew dye inks on pink cardstock to get a tone on tone look. 
So this technique works with most type of inks other than distress inks too. 

To create the cards I used coordinating cardstock for the card base and die cut the sentiments using a sizzix dies, which were then inked in the same colours as the cards and heat embossed with clear sparkling embossing powder to add dimension and shine to the matt cards.
