The Stamps of Life – Fun with Stencils

A few weeks ago I posted cards on the Stamps of Life Fan Club page on Facebook where I double stenciled a few backgrounds and several people asked if I could show some of the techniques. There are no special rules to double stencil backgrounds – use the products and inks you have and feel free to experiment because you never know what you can create!

For all of the examples below, I used Stamps of Life stencils and I decided to use just two ink pads so you can see how different they can look. I used the new sunshine ink pad and tangerine. I love the way yellow and orange go together.

Just a few last tips: Remember to tape down your work with any type of low tack tape to avoid your paper and stencils from shifting; and if you have a glass mat, I recommend using it for these projects because you will need to continually clean your work surface in order to avoid smudges. Thanks for joining me!  Happy Crafting!
