More Stencil Inkiness

This month's challenge is "Getting Inky With Stencils".  If you play along, you can win the stencil of your choice.  That's right--any stencil you want!  But, how do you play?  You use ink with stencils.  Any ink, any way.  Then, take a digital photo and email it to Lynell at She will put it online for you so that everyone can see it.  If you have a blog, a gallery, or even a photo account, you can put it online yourself and link it to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the Dreamweaver Stencils Blog.
Last week, I showed you alcohol inks on metals.  This week, lets see what they can do on Glossy White Paste. 

Pink Vellum
Patterned Paper
1)  Use removable tape to tape the stencil down to cardstock.  Be sure to tape all the way around the stencil.
2)  Put White Glossy Paste on spreader.  Pull it down across the stencil.  Think of it like a squeegee.
3)  Remove tape from 3 of the 4 sides of the cardstock and lift stencil as if it were on a hinge. 
4)  Remove stencil.  Let paste dry.
5)  Replace stencil.
6)  Use applicator to daub color on the stems and leaves.  You can also thin the color a little and daub onto the bottom of the petals.
7)  Remove stencil. 
8)  Assemble card.


  1. Love the card, Laura. Perfect choice of colors for this great stencil.

  2. LOve the colors and your application is perfect! GReat job!

  3. Great job! Love those colors in the Dreamweaver Color Solutions line!

  4. So soft and sweet, I love this Laura. Great choicer of colors.

  5. So did you emboss the pink vellum then glue it over the white paste? It's very pretty, I was trying to figure out why the flower looked different, then I notice your supply list, clever idea!

  6. lovely card Laura! One of my favorite stencils this year to play with.

  7. So elegant and stately! It's time to pull out the glossy paste. Thank you for the step-by-step instructions.
