So, I was messing around with my stencil collection yesterday and this is one of the cards that resulted. I thought it was a fun treatment for a one-layer card which usually include more white space. Obviously, I wanted a totally cute focal image so I grabbed the Precious Pair from Christmas Cheer and started working!
I stamped them first and then masked them off to create the blocked sections for the stencil patterns. In hindsight, I should have colored these lovely ladies BEFORE masking, but I was excited to be back and getting inky!
The stencils I used are mini-sized, about 4"x4". I got them at Michael's one day during a fab sale. Most were only a dollar or two. I love reuseable tools! Once, I blocked off the squares, I spinged on a base layer of ink with my lightest ink and then used the stencil with a ink dauber and a darker hued ink. I liked it!
