Virginia's View Challenge #2: Stencils

After a wildly successful 1st challenge, Virginia has posted her 2nd one today and it's stencils!  I played around with the stencils I currently own, but nothing was floating my boat, until I saw what Jacqueline did.  She used a die-cut as her stencil, and then my world of possibilities opened wide!  Here's my entry for today:

Virginia's View #2 Stencils

I already had a die-cut of this Impression Obsession Floral Lace Heart, and thought it would be fun to use it as a stencil, coloring in all the flowers.  First I used the actual die to make an embossed impression on my card front, then I taped the die-cut over it carefully and colored through it, using distress markers.  Most of the flowers don't have centers, so I added them with my beloved pearls, and then stamped my Hero Arts sentiment to finish.

I love the way this turned out!  Thank you, Jacqueline, for the inspiration!!

I'd also like to enter this into the Moxie Fab World's Styling with Stencils challenge.

  1. Great card for both challenges Lin! I saw Jacqueline's card in the HA flickr group pool too, and I was thinking to create a stencil using die as well! Let's see how long I procrastinate before I actually get something done! ;)
