How to Make a Stenciled Background for your Card

Stenciled background Cards

Creating a stenciled background is one of the simplest ways to make your card pop. And using a turnabout stencil just makes it even better.

I used the Faceted Turnabout Stencil from Concord and 9th to create both of the cards. I promise it really isn't as hard as it looks.

All you need is one, two, three, or four different colors of ink and a blender brush. I also recommend a positioning tool like a Misty to make it easier. The stencil does all the work.
