It's my turn to share a few ideas with the new Scrap365 Wooden Shapes!
What first grabbed my attention was that once the shapes are popped out of their carrier sheet, you are left with a fabulously robust and sturdy stencil!
So I put my Gjill Sans Letter leftovers to good use!
MATERIALS: PAPER: American Crafts - cardstock; Crate Paper - DIY Shop 6x6. EMBELLISHMENTS: Scrap365 - GJill Sans Letters, Polaroids - heart. OTHER: Ranger - Dylusions Ink Spray - Lemon Zest, Calypso Teal, Fresh Lime; Heidi Swapp - Color Shine - Tropical Teal; Pro Marker - Ruby.
I spritzed with mists and inks and then using a fineliner pen I drew around the 'hole' where the letter had once sat. I used the letters in their 'naked' form as I liked the neutral colour against all the razzamatazz of the inks. I used an alcohol pen on the heart - they take colour fantastically well. I don't have an example here, but I have ombred the colour onto the shapes with alcohol pens :)
For my next example I wanted to see just how many different mediums these shapes would take - let me tell you I have yet to find one that didn't work!
Then as I was fiddling about it occurred to me that the shapes would work as a stamp too! I attached the heart to an acrylic block using a craft dot. If you use an ink pad the image has a woodgrain effect, however, if you dip the wooden shape into liquid ink then the result is a smooth finish. Plus you get a beautifully muted colour onto your shape too :)
