I came across a cool technique a few weeks ago, and shared this with my TOTALLY TECHNIQUE CLASS attendees a few days ago. The class featured the technique of DIE CUT STENCILING and one thing I shared with them, that was a type of take on the technique we were doing, was this STENCIL SKETCH TECHNIQUE. It’s a SUPER simple technique and makes any project SUPER CUTE!!
On top of using this awesome technique for this fun card, it’s time for a new sketch challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments… here is the sketch that the Design Team got to work with-
I paired this adorable sketch with a FUN technique and added a layer of even more awesomeness by using that adorable stamp set YEE-HAW!!
Just 3 simple steps and you have a cool effect.
1) grab your stencil, geometric shapes work best.
2) trace an outline of the image with a Stampin’ Write Marker
3) draw lines in one direction, them draw lines in the other direction over top – creating a clean crosshatch pattern.
This simple technique is SO fun and seriously, gives such a cool look to any project! Take a moment and play along with us, you have a full 2 weeks to play along. Create a project (it can be anything… ) that is inspired by the sketch we are using this month. It will be so fun, you will be surprised!
