Papertrey Ink Challenge # 253

We interrupt all the coffee craziness going on at the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, to see what can be done with the Reverse Stencil Challenge at Papertrey Ink.

I have to confess that most times my use of a brayer and inking of stencils ends up with a brayer that won’t come clean and ink everywhere but where I want it.  This is a technique, I think. that is easy to do and very difficult to perfect.  In the end, I came up with something that I think looks quite nice.



The small butterflies are covered with Shimmer Embellisher to give them some dimension  and the last picture does show the embossing details on the large butterfly.

Supplies:  Papertrey Ink What the Doodle stamp and die set,  Recollections stencil, WeR Memory Keepers Birch Trees embossing folder, Pico Shimmer Embellisher, Recollections embossing powder,  Ranger Emboss It ink,  Hero Arts, Simon Says Stamp and My Favorite Things dye inks, Recollections card stock, Simon Says Stamp card base and Scor tape
