Reverse Prints

I've been using my stencels quite a bit in my artwork. I watched the Craft TV Weekly episode of June 22, 2007 with Trica from Club Scrap and found another reason to love them! After using your stencils, then lay a piece of paper over the stencil to get the reverse print. I didn't have the specific misters referenced in the episode but I did have Ranger Color Washes, OTM Color Mists, and Radiant Rain. They all worked wonderful!
Here, I just used the Color Mists - nice, subtle, watcolor effect.
Next is the Radiant Rain - you can see a little of the shimmer in the picture - LOVE the bold, shimmery colors. I've also stamped a flower image underneath the stencil in order to use the section that was oversprayed.

Next up is the color washes. They are definitely darker, but still make a nice image.Then I started playing with some of my other stencils. These next 2 pictures are color mists and radiant rain.

These are addictive! So fun to make, quick, and easy clean-up (just run under your water faucet).

I love this idea. Your reverse prints look so cool, I'm going to have to give this technique a try.

These turned out very cool Robin. I would have never thought to use the reverse technique. Your going to have a lot of fun using these in your art.
