Hi, it's Therese, and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese. Today, I'm sharing 2 bright stencil techniques to stretch your creativity with stencils!

A New Bold Look with 2 Amazing Stencil Techniques!

@altenew_ 2 Bright Stencil Techniques feat. Majestic Mountains Layering Set Stencils are an easy way to add color quickly, and with layering stencils such as the Majestic Mountains Set, you can achieve a fabulous realistic look. 

Today, I decided to change up the color combinations to make the mountains less realistic and more bold and bright.  But I wanted more…

Technique #1 – Reverse Image!

The first of the stencil techniques I'll be introducing today is something called the Reverse Image technique.

I wanted to blend a sky behind the mountain but didn't have the positive portion of the image to do this.  So, to create the reverse image of the mountain I created a quick mask using a pencil and Masking Paper

It was easy to fussy-cut this out with some Fine Blade Scissors and the best thing is that I can re-use this mask if I want to.

I started with a Pink Diamond base, but otherwise, this mountain was blended using the Golden Sunset Fresh Dye Inks.

PRO TIP:

The Stampwheel Sticky Mat: Grid is the perfect companion to hold stencils in place when blending!

But why stop at one bright mountain when you can have two? My next color choice is pink!

Technique # 2 – Layering Stencils!

Why not create a unique focal point using a second stencil? 

For example, today I used the Circle Frame Stencil as a base to add the Majestic Mountains image, it changes the look completely and actually makes it more like a focal point.

This time I added a hot pink glittery Red-Crowned Crane.

PRO TIP!

I like to stencil my images onto a separate piece of cardstock and add this to the front of the card, that way, if I make a mistake I have wasted less of my precious cardstock lol.
