Caroline with you today to share another fun technique. You all know that you can spray over a stencil but did you ever try to use Magical powder over one? Sometimes I go away for cropping time with friends and I don’t bring all my material, that’s why I love Magicals so much.
You can easily bring a lot of colors in a smaller bag, rather than bringing all your sprays with you.
I made this background using only 1 Magical color over a white watercolor paper. I chose Hydrangea blue.
With a fan-shaped brush I sprinkled a small amount of magical powder over my stencil.
Then I gently sprayed water over it. Don’t use too much liquid, or it can flow under your stencil.
I worked with 2 papers side by side to use the leftover ink that remained on my stencil, I simply turned it over the new paper and pressed a bit.
Now I have 2 backgrounds ready for the price of 1 :)
I picked up the first background to continue my layout. I sprayed some snowflake die cuts with the same color, Hydrangea blue.
My title was embossed with Bavarian blue powder, this blue fit perfectly with my background and picture.
Here are some close ups of the layout once finished.
I will never say enough how gorgeous are the shimmers in the starburst sprays and magical powders!
That’s it for today!
