Stencil & Stamp Layers Art Journal Page with video tutorial by Gerry

Hi lovely Rubber Dance friends, it's Gerry on the blog today and I have another art journal page for my mini album to share. I did some easy multi colour layering with Distress Oxide inks, Rubber Dance stamps and a Tim Holtz Stencil.

On this page I did another way of layering with stamps and a stencil this time and all these techniques or a page like this can also be used on a card. Be sure to watch today's video to see all techniques in action.

I used Distress Oxides Ink Spun Sugar, Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean to colour the background with the Tim Holtz - Layering Stencil - Tiles.

I stamped the Grungy Butterfly with Nuvo Embossing ink and heat embossed it with Nuvo Embossing Powder Jet Black. I used Distress Oxide Black Soot with a 
Nuvo Nylon Brush to colour the butterfly.

I used the Old Book Page stamp to add texture through the stencil. This gives a fun and subtle texture and some black accents as contrast for the soft colours.

I added the some words with the Mix A Sentiment stamped on Craft Perfect Ultra Smooth Card with VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to keep on crafting!
Gerry van der Velden
