Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share a layout with you today that I’ve created using some of my favorite techniques and of course with some of my favorite Clearsnap products-Pigment Ink and Art Screens!
I chose to do a reverse “stencil-stamping” technique that I’ve used before-quite often! I began by applying the Pigment Ink directly to the Art Screen in a dabbing motion; only a small section needs to be inked for this technique.
Once the Art Screen is sufficiently inked, I lightly spritzed the stencil with water (for movement).
Next, I flipped the Art Screen over (do so over scrap paper in case water drips) and gently placed the inked side onto my cardstock; gently press the stencil only to avoid ink seeping through the negative portions. I removed the stencil and had my design! A little goes a long way, therefore, I was able to “stamp” in two additional areas with the original inking!
I used a “few” die-cuts on this layout! I do this often because it gives me the opportunity to customize my embellishment colors; the leaves, flowers, butterflies, and tag were all customized to fit the page!
I used Susan Weckesser’s Metallic Color Pop Pigment Ink in “Shimmer” and ColorBox “Gold Shimmer” Embossing Powder to create the butterflies and to stamp the title of the page. Seriously folks, a white piece of paper and Clearsnap is all you’ll need in your scrappy lives! I hoped you’ve enjoyed this fun and easy project!
