Template Tutorial with Spray Inks And Lost Coast Design Stamps

Note: this post replaces the original post that was deleted----.

Hi Everyone,
I have a tutorial today showing one way to use a Template made by Crafters Workshop.  This template is called Mini Harlequin.  I used stamps from Lost Coast Designs.  

Here is the project we will make today.

Materials List:
Praying Angel Stamp
Mini Harlequin Crafters Workshop Template
Ink: Coffee Archival Ink from Ranger
       Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger
 Ink Sprays: Plum and Gold
CS: Black, Wine, and Kraft
Gold Brads
Gold Ribbon  

Start by cutting a piece of Kraft CS.  Layer the template over the CS and spray with the glimmer spray or spray type ink.

Pull up the template.  DON'T clean the template off yet!!  I found that if you flip the template over, you can get a reverse image and don't waste all that ink you have sprayed on the template.  

Press the template into the card stock inked side down.  And, you get this really cool reverse image!!  How cool is that!!??

Now let's finish up the card.  Trim the Kraft CS and stamp the Praying Angel with Coffee Archival Ink.  Stamp a second image on Kraft CS.

Cut out the angel on the second stamped image.  Layer the angel onto the original image.  Distress the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Layer onto some black and wine CS.  Make a card base from Kraft CS.  Add some ribbon and gold brads.  

Here is another example that was made using Terra Cotta Walnut Ink Spray.

And it looks like this:

I used the above reverse image on this card:

Stamps: Steampunk Pony and Buttons Border

I also used a left over piece.  Don't want to waste any.  LOL

And here is the card I made with the left over.

Stamps: Dress Form and Buttons Border

These Templates are a lot of fun.  I now have a  whole stack of backgrounds are ready to be made into cards.  I am addicted to  making backgrounds with this technique!  It is so fun!!  A bit messy, but that is what soap is for.   LOL  Give it a try.  Have a super day!!  Love ya.
