Creative Challenges - Stencil Resist

So neither of my substitutions worked like Distress Glaze, but I actually really like both my backgrounds.

Left, I stenciled in light blue, shifted the stencil, and added a thin layer of crackle paint over. (I figured it was clear). Then I immediately cleaned my stencil. I then dipped the paper in purple and blue distress inks. This did resist but I didn’t see the halo like in the tutorial results.

Right, I first stenciled with brown. Then I shifted my stencil and added Versamark ink. I know that sometimes it acts as a partial resist. Well, it didn’t really do that in this case. Maybe doesn’t work on watercolor paper. I dipped it in brown, blue and greens. I think what you see here is more an addition of different colors making the stenciled portion look darker than the pattern.

Both backgrounds are stunning! Are your stencils border size or are we only seeing partial view in the photo...what company makes them?

My stencils are 6x6. I just showed a portion of them for reference. They are from A Creative Life Stencils.

Great backgrounds! Thanks for showing the stencils you used. I like how the leaf one masks the leaves so they stay white, until you dip in ink anyway.
