Reverse Stencilling

I recently saw a new technique on YouTube that looked pretty fab and I just had to try it! It's called reverse stencilling and I saw it on Rina K Designs You Tube.



It's really quite simple this technique is, doesn't require too many supplies nor does it require perfection. You start out first by ink blending your cardstock and then you do the stencilling, which is kind of the opposite of how you'd normally use your stencil. And no worries if your ink blending isn't perfect either, as the black layer on top will cover up any imperfections from your ink blending. You can actually use any colour for the darker layer on top, although a dark colour like black is best as it will black out the colours underneath....if that makes sense.

I really like the effect that this gives...it makes it appear as if you started with a black base but was still able to achieve the vibrant colours that are peeking through. There are sooo many stencil and colour combinations to explore with this technique...I can't wait to try some more!

I hope you enjoyed my card for today and that it has inspired you to try this fabulous technique or even to just get creative. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
