This one utilizes two of my favorite stamping toys: stencils with stencil paste, and dried dye ink powders . . .
I used the dye powders on the background first, misted with water and then heat dried them. Then I stenciled with the paste and let dry. But I got a little surprise I hadn't anticipated: as the dye powders are not permanent, they reactivated with the wet stencil paste which wicked up the colors. While this might be a look I might go for on other layouts, it didn't work for this one: the white text was no longer white and clearly looked like the mistake it was – so I traced over the letters with a white Sharpie marker in order to get back the crisp contrast I was after. Quick fix!
Next time, I plan to spray the colored powders with a workable fixative before I stencil.
