I made few gift tags to check how I can use cake stencils for adding textures!
The craft stencils are thin, so we can easily apply a thin layer of texture paste, but the cake stencils which I bought were thick , therefore thick layer of texture paste has to be applied. And also we have to carefully use the stencil as it is easy to move and we will end up seeping outside the design.
The benefit if using cake stencil is that, it gives a good embossing effect.
I have used cake stencil, gesso, acrylic paint, dollies and glitter to make these tags.
