Papertrey Ink Challenge # 254

The challenge this week is to use texture paste with stencils. I still don’t have any Papertrey Ink stencils, so once again the challenge for me is to find a Papertrey Ink substitute that I can use.

This is another project that looked better in my head than on paper, but it is kind of OK.

The biggest bummer for me was opening four different jars of embossing paste, only to find that they were completely hardened in the jar.  Luckily, my Ranger texture paste was “good to go” and I could just add some spray mist to make it blue.  If anyone has a foolproof way to store embossing paste, please let me know.



Supplies:  Papertrey Ink What the Doodle Wave die (made into a stencil), Papertrey Ink Keep Swimming stamp set, Ranger Texture paste,Radiant Rain Mist, Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp dye inks, recollections cardstock, Hero Arts card base and Scor tape.

Papertrey Ink- Make it Monday Challenge -Feb 29 2016

The Make it Monday Challenge this week is to combine a stencil with an Ombre Technique.  Problem for me was that while I just received my first ever Papertrey Ink stencil, it didn’t seem to be an appropriate one on which to do an Ombre technique.  I had forgotten to bring any stencils from my summer home…………so what to do?  The answer was to make my own stencil.  I didn’t have any stencil plastic either so I had to use an acetate sheet.   It actually worked amazingly well.

I made the stencil out of repeated cuts of the smaller tulip die.  I wasn’t too crazy about the relative scale of the focal point to the background, but after making two other backgrounds, this one remained my choice.  I now have two other backgrounds that I can use with the tulips on other cards.





Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Tulip Time stamps and dies, Lia pigment ink, Recollections cardstock, acetate stencil, Tsukineko sponge daubers, Scor tape, Hero Arts card base
