Stencil Shadow

Picnic - "I love you so much I could squish you."

Make your stencil images pop with this clever shadow technique!

Here is how it's done . . .

1. Stencil the Tin Tiles image at an angle onto white paper using Ash Ink.

2. Move the stencil slightly to offset the image.

3. Fill in the stencil with turquoise chalk ink.

The ink was a goodie in the Artifacts Lite kit.

4. Remove the stencil to reveal the shadowed art.

5. Cut the art into four 4x5.25" panels.

6. Attach the panels to four Salsa Blue 5.5x8.5" folded cards.

7. Time to add your sentiments. Don't be afraid to mix up your kits. I chose stamps from PSL Bugs and Picnic.

8. Too much white space? Stamp a sentiment onto white paper and layer with a coordinating mat.

Picnic sentiment
Take Wing - "Make today ridiculously amazing."
There have been many amazing stencils created by Club Scrap during the past fifteen years. Which one is your favorite?



  1. Holy smokes, don't stare at that too long! It makes for kind of a cool dizzy effect!

  2. Love this stencil! Thanks, Julie, for giving us yet another use for it.


  3. Hmmm - I'm thinking this could also come in handy when the stencil slips! Love your new pic too!

  4. Great technique, Julie. It does make for a rather interesting optical illusion! :)

  5. It is really tough to pick my favorite stencil, I just love using them in all different ways, thanks for this idea too.

  6. Beautiful cards and a great stencil tip!

  7. I look of this is great and it is made with an easy two step process. This one is definitely one of my favorites. My most stained stencil is the circular medallion from Sorrento. I love that distressed look. TFS
