I am a big fan of oldtimer cars and so I knew I wanted to do this stencil for all kinds of projects. Check out some samples here:

Here is what I created for today:

NatKalbach_OldtimerStencil01

I do love to create some depth with my stencils -so here is how I did it here. I sprayed through the Stencil with Liquitex Spraypaints- but you can use any other paint media.

Then I cut out the car – just around the outline

I picked a page in my art journal where I had already played a bit with a background and gathered some repositionable double sided adhesive, distress ink and a blending tool.

I adhered the old timer with the repositionable adhesive  and then applied a bit darker distress ink with the blending tool – to outline the car.

I used another distress ink color and the stencil again, which I laid over the car again and went over it again with the blending tool.

As you can see it gave a another shadow- as the first sprayed stencil image still peaks through- and it adds already more depth to the oldtimer

Now I peeled of the oldtimer car and then carefully rubbed off the adhesive dots.

Next I placed the car directly onto the background into the before outlined borders-

I do this so later when you raise the car with foam pads- there is a shadow visible.

Then I cut out some faces that would fit behind the windows

and I cut out two windows of the oldtimer car on the paper

I applied foam pads to the backs of the faces

adhered them using the image of the oldtimer on the background and slightly a bit off

then I stacked two foam pads on top of each other- to give more height -to the back of the oldtimer car on the paper

and adhered the car also slightly off

and there you have it :) I think it is a great way to add dimension and depth with stencils.

    Nice. Reminds me of the movie theater canvas that you made for me. It still hangs in a place of honor in my kitchen and the Tim Holtz film strip has stayed in place. I just ordered the typewriter stencil and now I need this one too.

    Love the dimensions and the rich color you got, Nathalie!
    So inspiring!
    And how fun to put the people’s portraits in the old time car, too! :)
