Happy Little Stampers ~ Stencil Challenge

I really like playing with stencils and ink. Stencils make sure that the ink goes in the right place, well unless, I inadvertently move the stencil - LOL! Also, stencils are typically a bit more affordable. Well, they had been until the layered stencils were introduced. Layered stencils are awesome though - a way to add different colors without having the mask off the areas. We have a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Stencil Challenge

Here's my card

For my card, I used Taylored Expressions Create-in-Quads Layering Hexagon stencil, which I received as part of the Crop & Create Delivered Cardmaking Event held March 25-27, 2022. The stencils are quite large. However, you create 4 card panels at the same time. Your blending arm gets quite a work out. I used Concord & 9's honeysuckle, peacock, oceanside and sea glass inks, added with oval ink blending brushes - one ink color per stencil. I trimmed the panel and matted with black cardstock. For the sentiment, I used Taylored Expressions' Oh Yes You Did stamp set, which we also received in our Event kit. I heat embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock, which I trimmed to a thin strip. I adhered the panel to a white A2 card base to complete the card.

We'd love to see your stenciled creations in our gallery this month.
