How to use a Stencil and Glitter on a Background

Welcome back, crafty friends! Tracy here and today I’m sharing my first post for 2020. Do you have any crafty New Year Resolutions? I think mine would be to SEND or GIVE more cards. I create lots… but I also keep lots. That being said, today I’m sharing a fun little card with a stencil and glitter embossed background. Here are all of the details.

Using Stencil and Glitter!

I created a simple blended background using water reactive ink and a blending tool. Then stamped the image using black ink and added colour using watercolours and a waterbrush.

Next, I gathered the stencil I wanted to use, a stencil tool, ultra-fine glitter close to the colour of ink that I used and my Dual Tip Glue Pen. Pour a glob of the liquid glue from the Dual Tip Glue Pen onto your craft mat. Place the stencil where you would like the glitter background design to occur. Then using the stencil tool, spread the adhesive over the stencil.

Pull the stencil up quickly. I let the adhesive sit for a few seconds before adding the ultra-fine glitter. Tap off the excess glitter and let the glitter covered glue dry completely.

Once dry, I stamped the card sentiment in black ink up the side of the card. Then adhered the whole piece to the white cardstock card base using Crafty Foam Tape White.

Add the fussy cut stamped image using 3D Foam Squares White Small Size.

I love how this rather monochromatic glitter embossed background turned out for this fun and funky card. And I love the sentiment, “I admire your inner beauty.”
