Romantic Rose LL585
Picasso tool (stencil shield) LL332
Matte Black Embossing Paste DMBP
Crackle Paste CEP
What to do
Tape stencil to card stock using removable tape. Apply matte black paste with palette knife. Remove stencil and place it, along with the palette knife in a pan of water. Set the card aside to dry. Wash and dry stencil.
Reposition the clean stencil over the black paste and tape all sides with removable tape. Apply crackle paste. Remove stencil; wash and dry it and the palette knife. Set the card aside to dry.
Crackles will appear as the paste dries.
When the past is dry, reposition the clean stencil over the image and color with ink (I used Tsukineko Splendor ink pads) and a stencil brush. This is where the Picasso tool, or stencil shield, really comes in handy. By positioning it over the rosebud, it will help you keep the green of the stem from blending into the pink.
Adhere to coordinating mat, to patterned paper and, finally, to card base. Add embellishments and you have a lovely card for a birthday, anniversary or thinking of you.
