TCW and Monoprinted PostCards
Keri Sallee here and today I wanted to share with you a fun little set of projects I made recently.
I have always loved the look of mono-printing, but never really tried it myself. So today…I decided to give it a try.
There are LOADS of tutorials on mono-printing so check them out. 🙂
After making my prints, I decided OF COURSE they needed some TCW stencils!
Here’s what I came up with:
I am calling them “postcards” because that is roughly what size they are, but I don’t know if I could actually mail them. LOL
I used similar techniques on all of them, but here’s specifically how I made the left card.
Start with a fun mono-printed background. I used hot-press watercolor paper and a variety of DecoArt Craft Acrylic and Fluid Acrylic Paints.
Using your mono-Printing Block, Cover it in black Acrylic Paint.
Smoosh (that’s a technical term! LOL) Your stencil onto your block. Here I used the 6×6 Wagon Wheel Stencil (TCW571S)
Flip your Stencil over on to your mono-Print and use a Brayer to “stamp” the image
Peel your stencil back to reveal your great image! I trimmed my image to clear away the white edges before continuing.
Now layer and layer and layer!! I used other mono-prints to make my hearts. For my butterflies I used the 6×6 Winged Exploration STencil (TCW566S)
Here is some other fun I had with TCW and Monoprinting! I used 12×12 Stencil Butterfly Collage (TCW554) for my Cardboard butterfly and the butterflies in the background of my “explore” postcard.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project!!
Have a great day!
