Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, I've been playing with some stencils and I wanted to show you three different techniques.
My first card is a very simple background with 3 distress Distress inks blended to create the background.


Bonjour tout le monde, j'ai joué avec des pochoirs et je voulais vous montrer trois techniques différentes. Ma première carte est un fond très simple avec 3 encres Distress mélangées pour créer le fond.


My second card has a clear gel medium spread over the stencil and three types of Emerald Creek embossing powders poured over. The embossing powder will stick to the wet gel medium, I heat embossed once the gel had set. If you heat emboss before the gel sets it can cause some bubbling the gel.  This just gives a different effect. Why not try it both ways.


Ma deuxième carte contient un gel transparent sur le pochoir et trois types de poudres à embosser Emerald Creek saupoudrées. La poudre à embosser va coller au milieu de gel humide, je chauffe en relief une fois que le gel est pris. Si vous chauffez avant que le gel ne durcisse, vous risquez de faire bouillonner le gel. Cela donne juste un effet différent. Pourquoi ne pas l'essayer dans les deux sens.


My third card has two distress inks blended over the the stencil and glass bead gel over the ink blending. You will need to wash the stencil between using the distress inks and the gel. Glass bead embedded in the gel give a beautiful texture and sparkle to the stencilling.


Ma troisième carte a deux encres Distress mélangées sur le pochoir avec du gel de perles de verre. Vous devrez laver le pochoir entre l’utilisation des encres et le gel. La perle de verre incorporée dans le gel donne une belle texture et fait briller le pochoir.

Wow, all three stenciled cards are gorgeous, Christine! The stenciled image is so crisp on the first card. Love the mature color combo in the background. The gel and the embossing powder stenciling gives you an interesting effect! The blend of the colors are so cool. I love it. I bought Emerald Creek embossing powder recently, so I'd love to try this technique with the EB power and gel. The glass bead gel over the ink blending looks like yummy candy! I haven't had a good result with glass bead gel yet, but you made me feel like trying stenciling with it. Thanks for your inspiration!
