Everyday Hero and Timeless Tags Thinlits
If you thought I was done showing off cards that feature Timeless Tags, well you were wrong! I actually thought I was ready to move on, but then realized that I hadn’t shared this card with you yet. We made this during my Technique Classes in February and I have instructions for you below. But first, some of the details…
I stamped the super hero using Everyday Hero stamp set and colored him with PrismaColor Pencils. After a quick fussy cut with scissors, I then placed him on a tag made with Timeless Tags. I rather thought that the sunburst-y tag looked good with the little guy! I didn’t have any Pacific Point ribbon, so I cut a very thin strip of card stock and tied that through the tag hole. That’s my go-to trick for when I don’t’ have ribbon in the right color!! Works every time.
Here’s the tutorial…
This is a simple shadowing technique that creates an interesting background! Let me show you how I did it…
Lay a stencil over your card stock panel. In this case we’re using the stars stencil, (which is from the Hearts & Stars Decorative Masks set, shown below in the product section) over a Tip Top Taupe panel measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.
If you feel the need, you can secure both the card stock and the stencil with tape to prevent it from moving while you work.
Use a sponge dauber with Whisper White Pigment Ink and sponge through each of the stencil openings, transferring the ink to the Tip Top Taupe panel.
Allow to dry or use a heat gun to speed up the process.
Clean the white ink off of the stencil.
Once the white ink has dried and you have cleaned off the stencil, realign stencil over panel.
Slightly off-set the stencil to the right or left of the previously sponged stars. You’ll see most of each white star, but you’ll have a “slice” of Tip Top Taupe showing through as well.
Secure stencil in place if desired.
Use a different sponge dauber with Pacific Point ink and sponge through all of the stencil openings. You will be sponging over the white and the “slice” of Tip Top Taupe that is showing in each star.
Remove mask and enjoy your Shadow Stenciled Background!
I hope you like it! See you next time.
