Virginia Lu made me get messy!
It was an adventure but I did it...and CASE this Sketch helped me get it done!
After watching a couple of videos online, I went about inking my paper and spritzing with water. Oops! Too much! Made a mess. Take 2. So I tried again...ink, water, stencil. YUCK. I even used my poor neglected heat gun. Yep, it was not pretty.
Enter Take 3. NO water. Duh. I mean...I am a beginner here so who am I kidding. Yep, I went ahead and just used ink with the stencil but now I have:
1. A few pieces of paper-mangled with ink and water
2. One melted stencil...I obviously need to take a refresher course on heat gun application.
3. Lots of ink everywhere. *grin*
But even after all that...I managed to make a card. It is not "spectacular" by any means in the realm of stenciled cards but it is a start and I am kinda proud. Yes...I feel elated and I actually want to try this again; mangled paper and all...
