Hey everyone! Today I have a fun Artist Trading Block to share with you featuring the latest and greatest products from my crafty friends across the pond. For this technique we will be using Dylusions Ink sprays from the lovely Dyan Reaveley and stenciling with Flitter Glu and Mega Flake from Indigo Blu.
- Artist Trading Blocks ( I used the largest of the available blocks for this project…the Square Box Die)
- Dylusions Ink sprays (I used White Linen, Bubblegum Pink, Cherry Pie, and Funky Fuchsia)
- Stencils (I used Stencil Girl Circle 9 Stencil)
- Indigo Blu Flitter Glu Kit
STEP 1: Ink artist trading block pieces with Dylusions.
*Jim the Gentleman Crafter has a fantastic tutorial for you to follow on how to create beautiful pastels with Dylusions. I urge you to check it out if you haven’t seen it already. His Journal spread will make your jaw drop! See Jim’s Dylusions Tutorial and Journal Page HERE.
STEP 2: Cut a piece of fat foam (Included in the Indigo Blu Flitter Glu Kit) apply flitter glu with fat foam sponge directly through stencil.
STEP 3: Cover Project with Indigo Blu Mega-Flake (I used Winter Dawn) and rub off excess flake.
* You can see all the colors of Mega-Flake available HERE.
STEP 4: Use the Scoochy sponge (also included in kit) to buff off mega flake and reveal your stenciled design.
*TIP* You can also use Flitter Glu and mega flake to stamp or cover your entire project with a lovely marbled metallic sheen.
I’ll have more Artist Trading Block technique tutorials coming soon. If you missed the Artist Trading Block “Love” tower you can see all the ATB’s in the collection over at The Artist’s on the Block.
