I bought distress inks and applicators last year and have used them very little so this was a test of what I could do with them with a stencil, I haven't ventured into mixed media very much although have lots of things to play with. Since this is a stencil challenge I wanted to give center stage to the stencil so for embellishments I used a wildflower die-cut and a couple of butterflies. Using broken china oxide ink and sponge applicator I covered the stencil and white cardstock making sure I darkened the centers of the design, the finished piece was layered on some turquoise cardstock then mounted on a white base
Closer look at the wildflower die-cut and butterflies.
Finished inside of the card with a leftover wildflower die cut and a fitting sentiment for a friend's Mom that is in the hospital
Thanks for visiting today and I hope you dig into your stash and show how you use stencils.
