Using Rubber Cement as a Mask and creating a Peerless Watercolor background!
The video link is below!
I have the 'lobster two' font downloaded in Microsoft Word. I printed the three words: Live, Laugh, Love. I then scanned that sheet into the Brother Scanncut for a direct cut. Once it was scanned, I swapped out the laserjet print out with a piece of whitecard stock and hit cut! I wanted to create a stencil!
I placed the 'stencil' over a piece of watercolor paper and then coated the stencil with rubber cement.... TWICE. Use a heat gun to set the first layer of rubber cement, reapply the stencil and do a second coat of rubber cement, and also heat set. Rubber cement can create a great mask. It will keep the base color clean and untouched by whatever you decide to do next.
I used Peerless Watercolors to create a background. Once it was dry, I was able to rub the rubber cement off the words and have a clean white background.
These could be cards, scrapbook backgrounds, or framed as I did here. Any stencil could be used. The paper ones I created are still in great shape and ready to use again. If you use a plastic stencil, I recommend washing immediately.
