Double Stencils

The wonderful Karen Dunbrook posted this week's "Try a New Technique" challenge at SCS.  It's called "Do a Double Take" - use two different stencils on top of each other to create a background.

I started out with a script stencil and Distress Frayed Burlap ink and stenciled a subtle and patchy script.

I then used a flower stencil and various colours of Distress Oxide inks with finger daubers.

I sponged Frayed Burlap around the edges of the panel for definition, then popped it up on fun foam.

I added some stencils and a brown die cut sentiment.

Thanks, Karen, for a fun challenge!

Ink - Distress Frayed Burlap, Distress Oxide Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick, and Fossilized Amber
Paper - Gina K white cs, brown cs
Size - A2
Accessories - TCW Believe Script stencil, Plaid Lovely Floral stencil, Tim Holtz happy birthday die, sequins, fun foam


  1. Great effect and fun technique. Love the colours, the layers and the brown on the sentiment looks great x

  2. The DOX sponged flowers are so pretty with the subtle stenciled script, Susan! Pretty card!

  3. Thanks for the reminder to try this again. I do find this fun especially on backgrounds I mess up on and I have a lot of those. Your colors are wonderful, Susan. Love how this turned out!
