Stencil Tutorial: Masking and Selective Coloring

We have a new tutorial to share using the Sheena Douglass stencils and the new eBrush! For this card, Kendra used parts of the stencil by masking the image and also moved the stencil around a bit to just use a portion of the image. 


Crafter's Companion US Supplies:




Directions:


Step 1: Create the lovely sunset background with a piece of water color paper and several Spectrum Noir Gold-Brown (GB) markers. Starting with the darkest one (GB9),  use the chisel tip and simply color a few strokes across the width of the paper.  

Step 2: Add the GB8 marker and overlap the GB9, then color above that a little bit more. 

Step 3: Continue with the GB7 marker and then add GB6, GB4, GB3, GB2, GB1 (in that order). 

Step 4:  Use the GB1 marker and go over the entire colored area.  

Step 5: For the bottom area, DG1, DG2, DG3, DG4 were added and finished with a blender pen to bleach it out a bit.


Step 6: Use the new Sheena Douglass "Deer" Stencil and EZ Release Tape to mask off everything on the stencil except the large tree on the right edge.  


Step 7: To add color, put the EB8 Spectrum Noir marker in the eBrush System and spray color over the background to add a tree to the right side of the card front. 


Step 8: Flip over the stencil and add a tree to the left side.


Step 9: Use the EZ Release Tape to mask everything on the stencil except the deer laying down. Use the same EB8 Spectrum Noir Marker and eBrush to once again apply color.


Step 10: Carefully remove the stencil and add a sentiment to complete the card front.
