Stencils & Acrylic Paint Technique
So to start off - you need to use a thick acrylic paint, not the pourable kind. The pourable kind will just slide right under the stencil and mess up the image. I used squeeze tubes of paint from Artist Loft, or I also had some daubers of acrylic paint that have almost dried up - I just put the almost dried out paint onto my craft sheet added water and mixed until a thick but spreadable consistency. If you have the pourable paint, you can mix with a gel medium to thicken it up and work with that as well.
Card 1 - It's your birthday (Bees)
Using an old plastic credit card, spread yellow acrylic paint over part of stencil onto card front.
Cut some circles and stamp 'bee' image and mat onto larger circles. Adhere to card front. Stamp sentiment. Mat onto card back.
Card 2 - Giraffe card
Using an old plastic credit card, spread brown acrylic paint over part of stencil onto card front.
Stamp 'giraffe' image onto a piece of white cardstock and mat on green cardstock.
Card 3 - Butterfly kisses
This one I did a little different, instead of using acrylic paint, I used wood filler paste. I got this from the hardware store. It is that stuff you'd use to fill in a hole in a piece of wood. It is a squeeze bottle and is a little thick (course I have had this for years, might just be a little dried out), so I added a little water to thin it out and make it real spreadable. I then spread out on stencil.
