Stencil-in-Stencil Techniques


I’m going to start out this blog post with an apology…I’m writing this with a cat across my hands and laptop. Punch is being such a pain – and his paw keeps accidentally (ha!) tapping the space bar or a key. So if there’s anything weird in here, or if I give up early – well, I’m blaming it on Punch! 🙂

Stencil in stencil techniques

The stencil techniques for today had been originally part of the 24 Tags series – it was much plainer as a tag, but I do like it much more with the watercolor and stencilled background!  If you can’t see the video below, click HERE to watch it in HD on YouTube.

I think stencil techniques will be something I revisit, I have some cool stencils that’ll be fun!

Things of note

  • Just saw Mockingjay and LOTR yesterday – both awesome! Recommend against 3D though, not a fan.
  • Want a little Copic coloring challenge? Check out the Copic blog for a digi with a 12 part tut. I played along – I’ll post mine on Instagram later today.
  • I would LOVE to have THESE guys over my house.
  • Yesterday I posted my 24 winners! There’s a bonus giveaway, be sure to check out another opportunity for a freebie!
  • Excited about WOTE’s movie coming today!

Also, the reindeer is fabulous!
