Happy Saturday to All!
It's a brisk one here in North Carolina!
Hoping my bloomed azaleas survive!
We can't complain though because north of us is going to have a near spring blizzard come next week!
So what to do if you find yourself inbound?
How about play along with the new challenge
This week Maria has us using STENCILS!
I'm having sooo much fun being the Guest Designer this month! I love using stencils so I had a lot of fun with this challenge. My only dilemma was which stencil to use.
PAPER: White and kraft cardstock.
INK: Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Broken China Oxidized Distress Ink (Tim Holtz)
EXTRAS: Stencil - The Perfect Reason (Stamp of Approval); Spring Flowers Dies (Lil' Inker Designs); Scallop die -Sunshine Layers(WPlus9).
I used the new Oxide Distress inks from Tim Holtz on my card this week. I looove them! They are so creamy and blend so easily together! I sponged them over the stencil onto kraft cardstock, then took a paintbrush and splattered water drops onto the sponged background. These inks work really well on dark cardstock. I not only used them with my stencil, but I also blended them on white cardstock and die cut my flowers from it!
If you haven't already, stop by the Just Us Girls blog and check out all the Design Team's wonderful stenciled projects for more inspiration. Then come get inky and stencily and share your own project with us!
