Transfer an Inked Stencil

It might be hard to imagine that these two cards were made with the same stencil. The Get Well Card came first. A stencil was used to create a subtle tie-dye effect for the background and is the positive stencil image. With all the ink on the stencil, I didn’t want to just wash it away. I tried a transfer technique using a die-cutting machine and it worked really well making the background piece I used for the magical card. (the magical card tutorial will post on Jan 3, 2022)

materials

You can see the materials I used to create the background on the blue cardstock. The colors of Distress Oxide used were Faded Jeans, Broken China, and Chipped Sapphire. The stencil is from Fairy Stampers and is used with a light application of Pixie Spray to hold it in place.

I used the CrossOver II die cutting machine to impress the inked stencil onto my cardstock. This machine has an adjustable steel roller system so I could add the amount of pressure I needed to get a good transfer.

A close-up of the card’s corner shows how the ink transferred from the stencil. I love how I was able to get two different images from one stencil. The inks I used were three different colors of Distress Oxide that were randomly applied with a blending brush.
