Fill er up

I still had one more card to share from our week of challenges.  This was to use a stencil, I made mine from a spellbinder die because I didn't have a big enough open stencil, and you were suppose to use those tiny stamps you have that you just don't know what to really do with them.  Well I have had this stamp set of little stamps for quite some time, and I think I may have only used it once or twice, so this was a great challenge to use this set with.

Take your open stencil, stamp your little stamps inside and then sponge some ink around the opening of the stencil before removing, I will have to say the sponging around makes a big difference because I just had to take a peek of my stamping before that step and the sponging around really defines it nicely I think.

I wish I would have done the butterfly stamp in a different color but other than that I really liked the way this turned out.  I used 5 different little stamps in this.

Rubberstamp tapestry -- butterfly blooms
Spellbinders --  Big scalloped circle lg (for stencil)
Martha Stewart -- Border punch
Fiskar -- Corner rounder punch
Technique Tuesday -- Happy Birthday sentiment

We have had a couple of really foggy mornings, my hubby took some neat pictures I will have to get them from him and share.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and say Hi,

Oh, pretty little stamps, and I especially like the fern around the edges and the way you stamped off some. Very nice with the sponging. I think the butterfly stands out nicely, too. Love the border punch and the sentiment along the bottom. Your use of the blue here and there really brings it all together. It's pretty darn foggy here this morning. Very still. I love it.
