Using a Stencil

Happy Sunday to you! I am back with a card using a stencil on the background. I'd like to enter this to Virginia's View Challenge #2 and the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge:




I first cut a panel from white cardstock, layed the Studio Calico stencil over it (just to the top left corner) and used some washi to keep it in place. Then I used sponges to apply various distress inks to create this gradient look. After removing the stencil and adhering the panel to a card base with foam tape, I die-cut the Paper Smooches Hello from black cardstock and adhered this with tiny bits of foam tape. Very simple!

Have a great rest of the weekend everybody! Thanks for  visiting!
