Happy Little Stampers ~ Stencil Challenge January 2021

 Hello Friends! I'm so excited to tell you that I'm part of the design team at a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Stencil ChallengeHappy Little Stampers hosts many different monthly challenges. This Stencil Challenge is new. Our challenge will be

I love this challenge. It gives me the opportunity to dust off my stencils (once I find them, that is) and showcase my favorite stencils. Here's my first card

It's pretty dark and dreary here in rainy Vancouver. Making this card cheered me up with the bright colors. I started by inking up a strip of 96 lb bristol with distress inks (carved pumpkin, picked raspberry, ripe persimmon) using an ink blending tool. Next, I spritzed with water the stencil - STAMPlorations ARTplorations Art Flowers 2 stencil. I carefully placed the stencil, water-side down onto the inked panel. I left the stencil for a few minutes. I carefully removed it and picked up any extra water with a paper towel. I love how it turned out. I also dusted off my Stampin' Up Scallop Trim Border Punch and using a scrap strip of orangy-pink cardstock for the left edge of the card. I stamped the sentiment using Simon Says STAMP's Flower Friend stamp set with Hero Arts Strawberry ink onto a bright pink A2 card panel. 

We'd love for you to come join us
