2 different techniques, same stamps/same card

Twofer Card Challenge - Birds
Moving Along with the Times - Hearts
Art Impressions -  Hearts
Creative Knockouts - In stitches

I'm loving how these 2 cards came out. I used the same stamps but did 2 different techniques. It was so much fun trying the Stencil Transfer Batik technique that I saw on Lydia's blog today. You can see her blog here and her youtube video here.  It was fun to try and I had fun with my gel press and acrylic paints.


For this card, I used my acrylic paints onto
this stencil by Recollections. For the owl
stamp (Unity Stamp Company), I colored
him using Copic markers. Sentiment by
Amuse ArtStamps

For this card, I used the above stencil and did the
Stencil Transfer Batik technique that I saw on
Lydia's youtube channel and you can see it
done here. I love how it gives such a subtle
look of the hearts in the background. I colored
the owl with my Koi watercolor paints.

Really cute cards! That's a really cool background technique you did with the stencil. I like how it created two completely different looks. Thanks for joining in on the fun of the Lots of Hearts Challenge on the Art Impressions blog. Jil
