Stencil Stamping

For those of you who are subscribers to the Technique Junkies Newsletter, you might recognize the new technique "Stencil Stamping" on this pear. You will notice that this pear has a subtle pattern in it, that's from a brass stencil!

Wait a minute. The flower thingy is not part of the stamp?

Good morning, Shelby. I didn't realize you'd be up before noon today.

Your cat woke me up 10 minutes ago by sitting on my bladder. So, the pattern that's in the pear isn't a pattern that's in the stamp?

No, the stamp is from the Oxford Impressions plate Field Notes. The samples I've seen using the Stencil Stamping Technique use a solid stamp, but as you might remember, Shelby, the pear stamp I used is a photograph of a pear, thus giving me a natural highlight on the left side of the pear.

Oh yeah, I remember that stamp exactly. I have memorized every stamp you own. All 12,973 of them. How did you get the pattern onto the pear?

I don't think I'm allowed to tell. It's a Technique Junkies secret. Suffice it to say that it involves a stamp, a brass stencil, and craft ink.

That does not suffice at all. I don't think you know what "suffice" means.

Go back to bed, Shelby.

Until next time, happy stamping!

Cyndi and Shelby
