Die-Cut Stenciling for a Background

Hello! It’s LauraJane. Welcome to a new week:))

I was interested in trying out a technique that Jennifer Mcguire shared, a while ago, for creating a background by using dies to make a stencil.  I’ll share with you the steps in photos using the Holiday Cones Coordinating Dies for the stencil.

Here are the steps to create the background panel:

  • First I repeatedly cut the two smaller branch dies from Holiday Cones Coordinating Dies on CS to makes a stencil.
  • Then Sponged a shade darker than the chosen colored CS..I chose Bright Emerald Dye
  • Next, stamp the coordinating images in an even darker shade…Basil Mojito 
  • For the shadows, I slightly misaligned the stencil and traced the images where the shadow would be with COPIC N1.
  • Trimmed the panel down with the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies
  • Adhered that onto an A2 sized CS in the same color as the original blue

For the embellishment:

Have a GREAT week!
