 In our last zoom meeting we did a card using a new technique to me and I totally forgot to share it with you, we also made a tea holder for gift giving but I haven't done anything with it.

In this technique we were to lay down a colorful background using different color inks. Then take a stencil and apply black ink over that, I really love the way it turned out.  For the card shape we score the front panel of the card again, sorry I don't remember the amount and I have already sent the card out, but I think it was an inch, glue that portion down, when it is opened you have a smaller place inside to write, gives it a interesting shape from the normal card, we glued a coordinating cardstock panel to the piece that was glued down and the stencil piece goes on the other side. Added a ribbon and bow to the side panel and then we were to decorate it anyway we wanted. I went for some small butterflies because I didn't want something too big to take away from the panel.

Tim Holtz - Doily Layering stencil, dye inks on background using black ink through the stencil
Simon Says Stamps - Tiny words Birthday sentiment stamp
Martha Stewart - Butterfly punch

The outside is decorated with at least the lights that were still working, ugggh!! And the tree is up and partially decorated, so far so good our cat has decided not to bother with it so that makes this momma happy :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and say Hi!
Hope you have a great weekend!

I like this colorful card! Thanks for sharing, and for sharing how you did thi. I can't tell you how many stencils I have sitting in my craft drawer (some Of which have never been used) You have inspired me to definitely put this technique on my to do list!)
