A New Technique with your Stencils

I have been having fun designing with my new Cutting Edge Stencils and recently I found a new technique here and a beautiful card using the technique here. Basically, you color around the opening in the stencil with your Copics (or other alcohol based markers), then pull in the color to the paper with a paper towel slightly damp with Copic colorless blender fluid. It results in a chalky look which is quite lovely. I tried it with the hummingbird stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils and then cut it out with a white border. I attached it with mounting tape over a background stamp by Hero Arts and a leafy flourish from Cheery Lynn Designs cut in aqua vellum. I also tried the technique with a stencil I created with a die and acetate, and will share the results of that later this week.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at 613 Avenue Create and Scribble and Scrap.

That is a cool technique and I love the card you created using it. I think I saw that on an email I received recently too, but have not tried it out at all. Might see if I can find a nice stencil or two in my stash and give it a go one of these days.
