Happy Thursday everyone. I hope your week is going good. Today I have some new Miss Ink Stamps inspiration featuring some stencil layering and that fabulous pup – Slim! I have fun coloring him in different combos each time, and the sentiments in this set get me giggling too!
I stamped and colored slim with my copic markers first, then fussy cut him out and set him aside. Next, I chose a sentiment, stamped and die cut it with a banner die and glued the two together. I love my dimension so I added foam tape to the back of these and switched gears to my background.
I knew that I wanted to use the new Diagonal Stripes Mask stencil so I started with that. You just place it over your cardstock, ink it up however you like, rotate it 180 degrees and ink it again to fill in all the spots perfectly. It’s so cool! Today I inked them up in gradient greens and teals, then layered another stencil over the top and added more of the same ink color to add texture to each space. The green has the square dance stencil over top and the teal has pocket full of posies.
I trimmed the stenciling down to 4×5.25 inches and popped it up on a white card base with foam tape, then added my image and sentiment. For finishing touches, I added white gel pen highlights and glossy accents to Slim’s eyes and nose. Last, I glued a scattering of stars from the champagne star dust sequin mix.
I had lots of fun getting inky and coloring Slim in a brand new combo for me. I hope you enjoyed today’s project too.
