Introducing… Ink & Flip Stencil – Christmas Star
Welcome to Day 3 of the product introductions for our July/August Release.
Today myself and the Brand Ambassadors are showcasing a fun and in my opinion another innovative Uniko stencil. This stencil has a fun ink & flip feature and this design creates a Christmas Star.
Enough talk, let’s have a look at the creativity and join me around Midday (BST) Live on Facebook as I demo this new stencil.
First, here is a look at the stencil…
As you can see from the product picture, it doesn’t look like much. Just 4 angled rectangles. Which, I am sure you could get creative with.
However, the concept of this stencil is to ink through, clean and then flip the stencil vertically, so what was once on the left, is now on the right. This will then reveal a star.
For my first card, I wanted to go rainbow. The sentiment I had in mind from Reach For The stars being my inspiration.
This took a little brain work to work the ink colours out. So Ideally line up your 8 colours and then start with colour 1, missing out 1 colour until you get to the point to clean your stencil & flip.
Then start with the first colour you skipped and repeat, missing the colours you’ve used. Ta dah! You then have a rainbow background and beautiful star.
My second card for today was an experiment. I wanted to see what the result would be if I inked through the stencil with my card rotated 45 degrees. And then inked again with it straight.
This is the result. It created an almost kaleidoscope effect. I only used two shades of aqua ink and I think if I were to do it again I would use 4 shades.
I also think you would get a fun result if you used a standard size card, like 10.5 x 14 cm.
I finished off may card with some Gansi Tambi gold ink splats and sentiments from Simply Said Blocks III.
If you are a visual learner, like me. I think this stencil needs to be seen in action to understand how it works. So I will be going live on Facebook around Midday (BST) today to demo the stencil.
Like before I will share the live recording on You Tube and share a link from all social platforms. I will edit and add a link to this post too!
