Today I’ve got two cards featuring a little bit of rainbow stenciling and masking off parts of the stencil. It’s a really simple technique but can give you some great areas to add sentiments to your card projects, or even for pocket page cards for your scrapbooks!

Both stencils come from Gina K. Designs (Thick Brush and Sun Spots) and the process was aided by the use of Pixie Spray, a fantastic low-tack adhesive that holds your stencil in place, keeping the most details of areas securely in places as you add your ink.

I’ve been asked about the Pixie Spray on my YouTube channel, about if I wash it off after usage and the answer is no. I leave it on the stencil, as it can last through a few ink blending sessions. I just tuck it back into my storage pocket (I cut the large Avery Elle Pockets down to 6.5 inches tall, and insert some paper as well), and they’re very easy to get back out. I was using parchment paper inside the pockets, but it’s really not needed as the tack is not that strong and it’s easy to get them out!

Here is my video showing you how I created these card projects:
