Altenew Educators "Style it with Stencils" Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

 Hello friends!

Today's a Altenew's Educators "Style it with Stencils" Blog Hop.
I am delighted to be part of the Educator's program and am happy to a stenciled project with you.
If you arrive from the blog of  Vicki Finger, you are in the right place!

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog 
For my project, I am sharing the use of Cloud Scene Stencil.
You may think this stencil is all about clouds and should be used only for scene cards.
It turned out that it is great for stenciling a background or border.
 
All products used are highlighted in bold and linked at the end of this post.

To create the illusions of layering, the Cloud Scene Stencil is easy to use.

Once I inked up the Cloud Scene stencil, I used the Amazing Things Die to die cut the stamped background. You can skip this step, but I do like the defined edges.
Subsequently, I added a 3 more die pieces and stacked it up.

 The added dimensions makes this card stands out even more!

The Antique Gold Pigment Ink is perfect to add colors and shine!
