Hi everyone, Sanna here again! It´s not goodbye for me quite yet, since Jaime asked me if I could do a few more posts here at the blog and I´m more than happy to. So we´ll be seeing each other a couple of times during this summer :) .

Jaime has already previously shown the layout here:sannalippert_hereandnow_full-397x400

and I thought I´d share a step-by-step  how I created that background. So I´m using the same technique on the following card and layout.

1. I used the “Chevron” stencil with a My Mind´s Eye stamp set and Hero Arts shadow inks. You will also need a black pen, some masking tape, a card base and an acrylic block for stamping.

2. First I placed the stencil over the card and adhered it to my working surface with masking tape. This way it will not move around during stamping.

3. I chose the little round number stamps from the set for stamping, since they perfectly fit into the free areas and create a nice pattern. Starting with the lightest color I randomly stamped through the stencil. After that I just repeated the procedure with another number stamp and ink color until all areas I wanted to cover were covered.

4. Next I outlined the stamped areas with a black pen for contrast. I love to use black as a contrast color in my projects.

5. After that I just decorated the card and added a stamped sentiment.

The following layout was created exactly the same way, I just used the “Sunburst” stencil and different colors on it.

Happy stenciling :) ,
