Q What did you use to create your fab designs? A
I made a stencil by using a piece of acetate, and cut it into curves for clouds, and spikey triangles for grass. Using acetate will help the ink slide off onto the card. I worked the clouds from the bottom upwards, and for the grass I made the blades lightest at the top, and darker at the bottom.
Q Do you have any tips for using a stencil? A
Turn your stencil over for a varied effect, but don’t forget to clean it before reusing! Work your ink into a sponge first on a mat; egg-shaped make-up sponges are cheap and great for inking. Remember, creativity doesn’t have to be accurate!
