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:

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.

This is a brand new type of design for me – all of the different little panels. Also, some of the stamps, the tulips, the clock, the leaves are all NBUS! 🙂 I used most of the colors from Kim’s card, yellow, blue, red, green, white and black on my card.
IMG_4770 copy I chose to use a variety of square and rectangle die cuts and then adhered them with foam tape. This card was a challenge for me, but I really like how it turned out! I would like to play along at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday’s Anything Goes, SSS Monday Challenge blog’s” Take a Leap into the Unknown because of the new type of design and layout. I’d also like to play along at Darnell’s NBUS#6: Anything Goes ChallengeColourQ’s #330:
