So Sorry for Your Loss

 Stencils can be used in many ways. Here is what it looks like when you wipe away acrylic paint using a stencil and a baby wipe. I must say, I am pleased with the movement of the paint and the clarity of the stencil. What are your thoughts?

Acrylic Paint:

   Wipe Out

   Baby Wipes

I advise you to use a heavy cardstock for this background technique. Have paints, brayer, stencil, and baby wipes at the ready. You must wipe away the paint before it dries.

First, apply drops of different acrylic colors on your panel, and quickly use your brayer to spread the paint on the panel.

Immediately, place the stencil over the paint and gently swipe the baby wipe across the stencil, removing some of the paint. Do not press too hard so the panel doesn't tear. 

Let it dry and use it as a background.

I did not want to cover up my creation. So, I decided to just stamp a sentiment. I suggest you use a tool that will allow you to stamp several times in exactly the same spot. This way you can make the words as dark and crisp as you like. A Stamparatus, MISTI, or even the discontinued Stamp-a-ma-jig will do the trick.
