I cannot even begin to express how inspiring the Stenciled class has been this past weekend! Not only did we get a ton of great ideas, but then Jennifer McGuire showed up with a BONUS card! On it she demonstrated a two stencil layering technique that was just gorgeous. I knew immediately that it was one I was going to test out for myself.
Mondays and Tuesdays are really long days for me, so tonight I came home and just started playing around. I pulled out the ol' Silhouette and cut a pisces frame. I decided to combine Jennifer's technique with a mask and stencil instead of two stencils... and here's what I came up with.
It's hard to see in the photo, but the stars are sparkly from the Maya Rd mist that I used to color them. I used a rainbow of colors of distress inks (Hero Arts for the purple), a Studio Calico cut (the Pisces frame), and Heidi Swapp 6x6 stencil (the polka dots). I really love the way it came out and I hope the birthday person to whom this will go will like it too!
I've also decided that this card is a fun fit with the current Moxie Fab Challenge, so I'm submitting it for that fun activity too!
