Let's get right to STENCILS!

Stencil Sunday @Virginia's (July  (3)  

Grid Stencil


You can find Altenew's entire June stencil release here.

This stencil may look simple enough, but the details that it adds to the design is amazing.

I did a Reverse Stencil Stamping...that means
---> spray ink onto the card stock to create this card
---> pick up the stencil carefully and flip it over
---> stamp another piece of white card stock with the leftover spray on the stencil
---> you now get this very subtle grid background  (no sprays/inks get wasted!!)

Once I got this grid paper, I set out to emboss the entire border with Hello Sunshine Stamp set.
I then colored the floral images and that's it!

The embossed image can be done in one sitting with the help of MISTI. 
 I painted/water-colored the edges with Gansai Tambi Watercolor.

I hope that you are inspired by my idea and simple execution.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
