gathering stencils, papers, ink pad, sponge roller & a alphabet stamp set
1. Cut strips of paper about 1" wide x 6" in length. I used brightly colored small patterned papers and stenciled with permanent black ink. The black ink really pops against the bright papers. I think it would be fun to trim the edges with pinking or scallop scissors too.
2. Position your stencils on the strips of paper and secure the stencils with removable tape. Roll the black ink over the stencil several times to create a crisp black image. Carefully remove the tape and set the stenciled strips to the side for the ink to completely dry.
3. Trim the paper strips to fit the A2 card. Stamp words with the small alphabet set to fill in the words that are not stenciled.
All of the supplies to make this Dear Diary are at the Red Lead store in St. Louis and on our website. 60 small word stencils are here. I'm going to spend the afternoon stamping and stenciling more cards - what will you be making? xo
