Reverse Stenciling Hearts x 2

Hi! I’m here with 2 reverse stenciled cards inspired by Betsy Veldman’s Make It Monday #233: Reverse Stenciling.

Here’s the first card:

IMG_9714edited

First, I made my own stencil using PTI’s Heart Cover Plate Die. Then I sponged ink onto and through the stencil. I spritzed water onto the stencil and then sandwiched it between two pieces of paper, ink side down, and rubbed the top piece of paper with my hand.

  Next, I used the same technique, but this time I applied watercolor paints onto the stencil.
