The new Tim Holtz stencils arrived, and I could not wait to try them.  I love the size of them, I love the variety, and I know that they will be something that I reach for often.  (although many have sold out and we are waiting on more)

Chantel had taken her friend Brittany on a photo shoot, and as I was looking through the photos, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

Out came the Inka Gold … Chantel’s favorite – pink … and the Tim Holtz burlap stencil, white stazon ink, and clear embossing powder.

I covered the frame in Inka Gold, waited for it to dry (it doesn’t take long), and buffed it with a paper towel.  Then holding the stencil over the chipboard frame, starting on the left side, I then tapped my ink pad over the stencil to fill in all of the holes.  Lifted the stencil and moved over, inked, and repeated till the frame was covered.

With my heat gun, I dried the ink somewhat before I applied the embossing powder, as I only wanted a subtle amount of embossing to show.  When I had the desired amount of wetness of ink left, I applied the embossing powder, shook off the excess powder and heat embossed the frame.

I am thrilled with the outcome, it looks awesome!  Chantel loves it … and when she saw how easy it was to do, she said she will be making some of these herself.
