Double Stencil Technique with Altenew and Pink and Main
Happy Craftersday, crafty friends! Happy New Year! In my first post of the New Year I want to share with you a great technique that I call the double stencil technique.
This technique works best when one of your stencils is a large, wide open space like a circle or in this case the ‘Cloud’ stencil by Pink and Main. The second stencil should have a little more detail and will provide the image that is going to be inside the larger image. I’m going to use the ‘Feeling Dotty’ Stencil from Altenew. Layer the stencils so that the detailed stencil is on your paper and the open space stencil is on the top closest to you.

I made my cards using some of the new Altenew goodies I recently received in the mail. To make the card featured in the YouTube video, I start by cutting and scoring Neenah Classic Crest 80 lb paper to make an A2 sized card. Next I layer my stencils as described above and use Dew Drops and Teal Cave Crisp dye ink to make my dotty cloud fusion.
To finish off the card I’m going to use stamps and ink from my stash. The result is wonderful, don’t you think?
I couldn’t make just one so here is a second card using a lot of the same supplies. I used a circle stencil with the Feeling Dotty stencil and traced the outline of the image in different color Tombow Watercolor markers.
That’s it for me. I hope this post inspires you to make something new and thanks for reading. Share this post by using the social media bubbles right above the comments section. Have a great day!
