AECP#7 Celebration: Stencil Techniques

Hi friends and welcome to my card for the next class in my AECP (Altenew Education Certification Program) journey. This Altenew Academy class was taught by Laurel Beard. If you think you can't learn anything new, think again! Every one of these classes taught me a least 3 new techniques.
For this card, I dry embossed the stencil unto the card front. Using the stencil like a die, I ran the Stone Wall Stencil from Altenew through my Big Shot using the Embossing Pad. This just puts pressure on the paper and indents the design. I tried to capture the dimension in the picture, but its hard to see.
The next step was to put the stencil back on the card front and ink blend over it so that the debossed areas are kept white and the rest has a soft blend. I used Gray Denim ink.
The card was finished with the Rose Flurries 3D Dies using Altenew's Gradiant card stock. Makes it so easy since the layering colors are already chosen for you. The sentiment is from the Bold Greetings die set, die cut 3 times out of black card stock and layered together. The little squares around the edges were the result of die cutting Spellbinders' Hemstitch Rectangles. Love that look!
My next stencil project used the Diamond Builder Stencil flipped around 4 times and ink blended with Sweet Leaf, Turquoise, Gray Denim and Tide Blue. Laurel showed how to put a dash line on the stencil design for a little added detail and I did so with a white gel pen. I wanted to use it in a simple frame to keep in my craft room. I like to change these frames out from time to time and this was a fun colorful design. The sentiment is from Altenew's Crafty Life stamp set.

This was so much fun to learn new techniques and try new things. Give Altenew Academy classes a try!
