Designer Take: Audrey and Amy Use the Heart Stencil

The January technique challenge is to give a stencil a try. Last week, we shared how to use mist over the stencil, and today we are using ink. Let’s take a look at how creative team member Audrey combinedĀ ink and the heart stencil from the All You Need is Love kit to create an ombre effect:

As a contrast to the reds and grays of her page, Audrey used yellow ink and the stencil to create a background paper. To bring to life to the ombre effect, Audrey was heaviest with the ink toward the bottom of the stencil design, then used a lighter hand toward the top. It looks fantastic!


Our January guest designer, Amy Coose, also used ink with the heart stencil:

I love how the placement of the stencil/hearts gives more emphasis to her title. Are you inspired to try ink with your stencil? There is still time to play along! See the original challenge post here for all the details. Have a great day!
