ACEP level 1: Stencil techniques

Hello, good to you see you! Today’s post shows cases a technique I picked up from another one of the ACEP classes: Celebration Stencil Techqniues. The classes showcases a variety of ways to use stencils in your papercrafts and from apply ink, to more substantial media such as embossing paste and also shows off using watercolours with your stencils too. Using watercolours with stencils was not something I had considered before so I was eager to use this stencilling technique within my cards. In addition, I wanted to add more texture to the background and use the dry emboss stencil technique to add more interest and technique to the background. Luckily I have filmed the process for you to all to enjoy. So sit back, relax and enjoy!
