Stencil Masking with Lil' Inker Designs May Monthly Meetup!


Amy Monthly Meetup2 

Hi!  It's May 11 and we are ready for another Monthly Meetup Challenge over on the Lil' Inker Designs blog


When the Cover-Up: Faceted die was released several months ago, my head was just spinning with ideas for this die!  So today, I put one of those ideas on paper.  I created my own stenciled background with this die with a technique I'm calling Stencil Masking!  This die is perfect for this technique because it has a hidden shape!!!

I started by diecutting a Cover Up: Faceted panel, discarding the inside pieces, and then "masking" off the "hidden" heart within the faceted cutouts.  My stencil mask was complete and ready for use!


I went for the ombre technique by sponging Picked Raspberry Distress Ink starting at the bottom with darker color and using a lighter hand as I worked up to the top of the heart.  I filled in areas on my trimmed cardstock by rotating my stencil mask around as needed.  This technique is SOO easy!  My 9 yr old daughter says "that looks easy.  Can I try?"  

My sentiment is from All About Ampersand which has loads of mix and match sentiments that are perfect to stamp and cut.  I simply stamped and trimmed down my sentiment as I only wanted it to say, "I LOVE YOU".  This was mounted with foam adhesive to my stenciled panel.  A scattering of Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added as a final touch.
