STEAMPUNK'D CHRISTMAS CARD



I am sharing a Christmas Card I made for SinCity Stamps today.  I used a technique I learned from Terri Sproul's Tuesday night show.  She does a live "Art Journal" show every week and she shows us many techniques!  Click her link above to find out more.

She showed us the technique I used for this card several times but I never tried it until now.  It is awesome and I know it will be in my "favorite techniques" file for sure!
Supplies:
This technique is like reverse stenciling.
I took out my stencil, paint and baby wipes.  I loved the flourish of the fish's tail so I taped off the rest of the fish.  I painted my whole piece of paper and let it dry.  I put my stencil on top and used the baby wipes to wipe off the paint that was inside the stencil.



How cool is that???  I can't believe I didn't try it sooner!  The flourishes look like flowers, I think.  

I stamped the Merry Christmas directly on the reverse stenciled, dry, paper.  I love how crisp these stamps are!!

I also stamped the postal stamp on some patterned paper to add to the top right corner.
I matted the reverse stenciled and stamped paper and added a bow with a button.

I hope you try this technique.  If you do be sure to let Terri know, I'm sure she'd love to see!!  Check out her Art journal group, All Things Terri Sproul!
