Good afternoon crafty friends
Today sees the start of a fantastic week of stencil goodness over at STAMPlorations.
After the success of the previous one we are having another blog hop and this is my card using one of the fab new stencils from Shery.
This one is made using Shower of Flutters combined with Trendy Butterflies Stamps and Noteworthy sentiments.
I started off by placing the stencil on a piece of white card and inking the background using DIs. While the mask was still in place I stamped some grasses
Carefully removing the stencil I then stamped over the white shapes with the matching stamps in black then coloured the larger ones with Copics. The sentiment was then stamped in black and the edges of the panel inked in black before mounting up on pads over a 5x7 card base.
You can see another stencil technique used here
