3 Ways with Mandala Builder Stencil!

by May Sukyong Park

Hi Friends,

Today I will be sharing 3 ways with the Mandala Builder Stencil! This very versatile stencil that has three layering component that can be used together or separately for different effects.

Stenciled Art Journal Page

To create the art journal page use all three stencils to make the above design. Use the Small Ink Blending Brush to blend the following Crisp Dye inks: Tide Blue, Fuchsia and Autumn Blaze. The stencils are very easy to line up and can be used with a multitude of color combinations.

To finish off, add details with a white gel pen and die cut a word using the Tall Lowercase Alpha Die.

Mixed Media Metallic Card

For this card, use only one stencil and apply Embossing Paste through it. While the Embossing Paste is still wet, sprinkle Antique Silver Embossing Powder in the centre and on the outer edges of the design. Return the rest to the jar and repeat with Antique Gold Embossing Powder.

Heat set the embossing powder, making sure to let it bubble a little before letting it cool. This will give it a more textured feel. I think it looks quite stunning on the grey card! To finish this card off, add sequins from the Make A Statement Bundle and layered a die cut word from the Tall Lowercase Alpha Die.

Simple Stenciled Card

For my third and final project use the remaining two stencils to create the background using Tide Blue and Ruby Red Crisp Dye Inks. Finish off with Satin White Sequins and another die cut sentiment using grey cardstock.

I liked the colors. That was an interesting technique with the embossing powders and getting the two tone look. Thank you.
