I am always looking for ways to create male greeting cards. This stencil will be my go-to tool. I am planning to use it for stripes and plaids. The quality of the stencil cannot be beat
I have a thing for colored pencils, plus I have few inks starting out. I've only used pencils with this stencil so far, and while the edges of most stencils tend to cause flecks of color to flake off, sometimes staining your project, embellishments or fussy cut/ trimmed things can almost always solve that issue. I do blow these flecks off my project frequently, and I am using not Altenew pencils.
Perhaps outlining each area, for stencils like this without too many small areas, then removing the stencil and carefully coloring, could help too.
I have not blended the coloring in any of my examples as currently I am enjoying the youthful, whimsical look and texture leaving it unblended brings.
A great stencil and staple for your craft stash. Create beautiful plaids and shadowed layers. Pleased with my purchase!!
Great for adding designs to my cards.
I've been looking for a diagonal stripe stencil for my craft room stash and the one is ideal. I love that it has a variety of stripe sizes. I will use this one a lot in my cardmaking. As someone else mentioned, you can reverse it and use it to create plaids.
