I am a Guest Designer today on Sassy's BLOG! My project today is making your own templates to use with alcohol ink. I brought along my beautiful niece Sophie to assist me!!
I found this Blue Stencil Film at Michaels. I cut it on my cricut using my Deep Cut Blade and multicut 2 times.
I found my swirl on the Creative Memories Reminisce Accents cartridge. I sized it and moved it to one side as the stencil page is 9 x 12.
This was my first time cutting stencil film and I was very pleased with how it cut!
I took a piece of lavendar cardstock and put it in a box. Thank goodness I have been shopping online a lot lately...I have several boxes to choose from!!
I used Tim Holtz Purple Twilight alcohol ink that I found at Michaels. I added rubbing alcohol (of course you can purchase the official alcohol blending solution at Michaels) to the Mini Mister. My test spray was too light, so I added more purple.
Here is the first swirl spray....
and after I removed the template!
I wanted a small swirl on the opposite corner to help balance out my project.
Here is my custom swirl paper!!
I added some ribbon, silver flowers, pearls, gems, a photo of Sophie and her name. I used Songbird for the font ~ love that cartridge. The letters weld so nice!! Sophie is 8 going on 18! I am going to frame this and give it to Sophie for her room!
