Stencilling through apertures


I wanted to share a few cards that I have made by using my stencils through an aperture.  I like the effect that this creates in terms of producing a focal point with a background stencil pattern.

Here I inked my Knitted Background stencil in Stormy Sky distress ink through a heart stencil shape.  I combined it with a sweet image from Mama Makes which has been watercoloured.  I shall link up at Simon's Monday Challenge where the theme is stamping as part of the fab Stamptember celebrations.

On this card I inked through a circle aperture using my Geometric Flower stencil and used that with Uniko's bold hello stamp.

Simple inking and an aperture can give a different look to the stencils.  You can find them in my Folksy store:

Thank you, as always, for stopping by :)

  2. Lovely cards, and what a great technique, Sarah! Your fox is adorable, and the ombre stenciling on the hello is beautiful! Thanks for joining us this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and sharing your creative make! hugs, Maura
