Using a Stencil as a Stamp over a Gelato Background

For a change, I decided to create my own background rather than using one of the Clarity designer papers.
Scribble gelatos in shades of blue, pink, orange and red onto a piece of 7” x 7” Clarity stencil card.
Blend out the colours with a finger then use a large flat wet brush to blend out the colours even further.
Add the City of London stencil to the background using a piece of masking tape to create a hinge at the bottom. Add Onyx Black Versafine ink to the back of the stencil, lay it over the background and run it through an embossing machine. Heat emboss the black with detail clear powder.
Repeat this process then remove the stencil.
Trim the card back to 6.75” x 6.75” and add it to a 7” x 7” black card blank.
Use water colour pencils to highlight the bus and the clock tower.
To finish, add a couple of Barbara’s word stickers.

  1. Love your background Sarah, thank you for posting my link for me. I have googled the problem and followed the advice, but still no luck. I did download a BT internet protection, but why it should pick on Julia's site I don't know. Angela x
