One Layer Stencil ...

Good Evening ... popping in to share this:

A simple design - a stencilled image and a stamped sentiment!  This is a new technique for me ... I used alcohol inks and a stencil on my gelli printing plate.  I brayered two shades of pink alcohol ink onto the plate and then added the stencil.  I removed some of the ink from the open sections of the stencil and then added some yellow Memento ink, removed the stencil and allowed this to dry.  As it was drying I masked off a rectangle on my card base.  Once dry I added a thin layer of Buff Titanium acrylic paint, placed the card base over the top and rubbed the back to transfer the image.  I un-crossed my fingers and removed the card ... and what you see is the end result.  I added a simple sentiment and that was that!!
A one layer card created with a stencil!!!

I used:
Adirondack Alcohol Inks - Cranberry and Raspberry
Memento - Dandelion Ink
Buff Titanium Acrylic Paint
UNIKO - Chrysanthemum Stencil and Simple Said Stamp Set

I will be entering the following challenges:
"Less is More" # 367

Also, TIME OUT Challenge #105 - Happy Birthday and Congratulations!!



  1. This is a fabulous technique and card


  2. I’m not familiar with gelli plates, but this looks fantastic!p Really cool technique. You’ve managed to capture the stencil details beautifully. Striking card, Elaine. Thank you so much for joining us at Less is More. x

  3. I just watched a video of a similar technique...and have wanted to try it. (I have had my Gelli plate for almost two years and it's still in the envelope.) This is a terrific result for a beautiful card!

  4. What a lovely effect this has and you should try this more often, makes for a stunning card full of texture. Thanks for joining Time Out

  5. You make it sound so simple, Elaine, but it is rocket science and magic to me! This is gorgeous!! Hugs, Darnell

  6. Gorgeous! What an interesting technique. I have not ventured into the alcohol ink world yet, though I have some. You have inspired me! Thanks so much for sharing this beauty with us at Time Out!

  7. I haven't tried to use a gelli plate but this might just make me get one, fab. :)

  8. What a fabulous result Elaine, and a really great technique too. A very beautiful card. My gelli plate got ruined when we moved to Portugal and I haven't replaced it yet - think you've just inspired me to! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
