Don't hate be but I LOVE stenciling! I've seen number of my blogger friends say that they are afraid to try it, don't like it, or can't do it. Give it a try and it may grow on you. Twenty years ago stenciling borders on walls the the "in" thing and I did a lot of it. So much so that I had to have rotator cuff repair. Even after that, I stenciled a saying around the top of the walls in my foyer - another house, another time. I still can't get enough of it and just got three new stencils.
Thank you, Virginia, for having a challenge to satisfy by love. I have two cards to share, each with a different stenciling technique.
This one uses my new Tim Holtz lattice stencil and three colors of Distress Inks on glossy paper. The sentiment, stamped in Salty Ocean, is from Clearly Besotted. I did one in another color way while I was doing this one, so look for it to show up in a challenge soon.
ETA: I didn't know you couldn't link up both cards from the same blog post so the one above is not in the challenge.
This card uses my new Color Box stencil with embossing paste. I colored the paste with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink (although it looks rather green). I cut the panel with Tipped Tops and mounted it on chartreuse card stock The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper, stamped in HA silver on a punched oval.
If you'd like to get more stencil inspiration, head on over to Virginia's View. She has a list of blogs and videos that will get you in the mood. Not to mentions the gallery. Lots of goodies there, for sure.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your weekend is going well.
