Getting Inky with Stencils

New challenge......

So this months theme is pretty open to a variety of interpretation. I wanted to start out with something C&S (clean and simple). So I started by spritzing a piece of glossy white card stock with Memories Mist; Pink Lemonade, Orange Juice and Blue Martini.

Next I took LL3020 Retro Sitting Cat and stenciled lavender pigment ink on the right side of the image. Again I used white glossy card stock. Heat set it just a bit. (Careful not to burn the paper - voice of experience!) Reposition the cat stencil over the top of inked image, then shift the stencil approx 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch to the left. Paste with White Glossy Embossing paste. Remove stencil, let dry.

Replace stencil and spritz with the same three Memories Mists. Matte with solid color paper and mount image onto spritzed background.

Make sure to check out the rest of the Dreamteams blogs for more inspiration on how to Get Inky with Stencils.


  1. This pretty, a really retro cat. I love the colors you used. Hope your doing well.

  2. Wow this is really cute Terrece! Did you do the eyes with a pen or a marker? Love using the sprays and I don't think I have ever tried it this way. Another technique many to try!

  3. One cool cat! tee hee! I love the candy look to the entire card.

  4. Wow. Jerry Garcia would have loved this cat! Fun spatter effect.
