Another Tulipe Tuesday!

Well, I had so much fun coming up with my very own stencil last week (and I hope you made your own too!) and using it to make super simple and easy cards with it.

This week I will show you how to use that same stencil using the Tulipe Die (or any other SU! stencil you might have) with stencil paste to create a beautiful textured image!

I got the idea from Kimberly (she has a video tutorial that you can check out if you’d like) and thought I would share it with you!

Here’s what you need to do this project:

a stencil (or to make your own, see my previous post HERE)

stencil paste – you can get some from your local craft store

popsicle stick/knife (something to spread your stencil paste with)

a surface to decorate (a scrapbook, a picture frame, a vase…)

stencil adhesive/tape

Step 1: adhere your stencil to your material ( I didn’t have stencil paste so I used tape – which I DON’T recommend.  As you can see, my image was not as crisp as I would have liked.  Tape was fine for when I made my cards HERE but sometimes I had a few blurs).

*If you want to have your image centered, here are my doodles for centering my image on a 6×6 album.  I kept the 2″ from the right and left to be centered but then made it a little higher than the 1 1/4″.

Step 2: follow the instructions on your stencil paste.  I had to knead mine, squeeze it out, and then spread it (I used a knife).

Step 3: remove stencil carefully and straight up (be sure to wash your stencil and knife to remove the paste)

Step 4: let paste dry

I added some ribbon to add a little something.  I think that next time I would plan my decorating (i.e. ribbon, any extra embellishments) before creating my image

I hope you have fun playing with this technique!

Have a fabulous day!
